Switchback Gallery, Monash University Gippsland campus
18 May – 23 June 2011
MUMA exhibition Self-Conscious: Contemporary Portraiture, allows us to dwell on one of the most fascinating subjects – ourselves. The act of self reflection, and the study of others, can be fraught, humorous and enlightening, whilst also revealing artistic processes and modes of philosophical address, laid bare in the work of art.
Featuring a range of works drawn from the Monash University Collection, this exhibition explores the many ways in which artists approach contemporary portraiture and represent different modes of identity. Artists include Fiona McMonagle, David Rosetzky, Mutlu Çerkez, Ronnie van Hout, Mike Parr, Matthew Griffin, Simryn Gill, James Lynch, Linda Marrinon and Eliza Hutchison.
