Traditionally the main function of portraiture was to produce a likeness of the sitter. But today, at the heart of current facial politics sits a complex interrogation of beauty, memory, surveillance, augmentation and display. The artists in this group exhibition engage with and yet resist conventional codes of portraiture to offer a fresh look at the representation of people in the digital age. By subverting the pageantry of vanity that is a contemporary life lived in social media, the artists question the role and relevance of portraiture in the 21st century. How do portraits perform in the process of creating our identity? Is likeness enough anymore, or has the performance involved in posing for a portrait superseded its memorial functions? Does the portrait merely exist as a receipt of experience? Several works in the exhibition act as a type of anti-portrait or critical riposte to the ephemeral nature of self-aware digital portraits and selfies.
Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is located at 2900 W. Berry Street at the corner of W. Berry and Greene.
