Sense of Self features Bay Area photographers who explore identity and selfhood through portraiture.
In the hyper-saturated age of portraits and selfies, this exhibition aims to remind us of the enduring power of photographic portraiture to tell stories, break down barriers, and subvert assumptions. Portraiture allows for connection between viewer and pictured subject, and through these moments Sense of Self presents new ways to see ourselves and others around us.
Sense of Self will be on view in the ICA’s Main Gallery November 9, 2019 – February 9, 2020. Artists include Marcela Pardo Ariza, Tammy Rae Carland, Erica Deeman, Jamil Hellu, and Stephanie Syjuco.
Sense of Self is supported by SVCreates, in partnership with the County of Santa Clara, and by a grant from the Fleishhacker Foundation.
