Curatorial Lecture Series: James Jensen: This Face is Mine—Artists' Self-portraits
Wednesday Apr 24 04:00 PM
Doris Duke Theatre
About the Lecture:
Although self-portraits have been made by artists since the earliest times, it was not until the Renaissance in mid-15th-century Italy and Northern Europe that artists began depicting themselves, sometimes frequently, as an identifiable subject in their work. This lecture examines the genre of artists’ self-portraits—drawn, painted, photographed, or sculpted—and reveals men and women from the past to the present whose works are well-known but whose own faces often are not.
James Jensen is the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Honolulu Museum of Art.
