Me, Myself, I: Artists’ Self-Portraits provides historical context to today’s selfie culture, through an exploration of self-portraiture over the last three hundred years. The exhibition, curated by Tessa Jackson OBE, in particular explores the last fifty years and the ways artists have imagined and presented themselves: from the highly personal and psychological to the controversial and political.
Me, Myself, I: Artists’ Self-Portraits includes over 80 artworks by major artists such as Grayson Perry, Tracey Emin, Sonia Boyce, Antony Gormley, Gillian Wearing, Harold Offeh, Shanti Panchal, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Angelica Kauffman, Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, Lucian Freud, Patrick Heron, Tony Bevan, Madame Yevonde and many more.
Discover the artists who challenged social norms and defied conventions, who questioned identity, gender and representation ahead of their time, and who constantly think afresh in an ever-changing world. Me, Myself, I: Artists’ Self-Portraits is a timely re-examination of a fundamental area of art history that will bring together work from the 1720s to the 2020s, placing well-known artists alongside emerging talent.
