Details:Drawn entirely from MMoCA’s permanent collection, Mirror Image examines the evolution of the portrait from the early twentieth century to the present. While often depicting physical likeness, portraiture also unveils aspects of an individual’s identity and disposition. With the introduction of photography and the art historical movement of abstraction, the genre of portraiture expanded from an elite mode of documentation to a more conceptual approach of representation. The format of the portrait continues to be a major theme in modern and contemporary art—whether a direct likeness or a conceptual rendering of selfhood. Today, with the ubiquitous social media phenomenon of the selfie, the portrait remains a testament to the fundamental human need for engagement, understanding, and the quest for memorialization of self and other. Mirror Image contains over 100 portraits—over half of which have not been seen in over two decades or have never been on view at the museum. The exhibition features work by artists Gertrude Abercrombie, Ivan Albright, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Warrington Colescott, David Hockney, Alex Katz, Käthe Kollwitz, Henri Matisse, Jim Nutt, and Karl Wirsum.
