Site:Brooklyn Portrait: Identity & Expression
By Site:Brooklyn

International Deadline: December 10, 2019  Site:Brooklyn is calling for works, across all mediums, that engage with the increasingly complex intersection between portrait and identity.

Portraiture hinges on the question of whom deserves to be shown. Beginning with religious and royal iconography, produced under systems of patronage, portraits were meant to immortalize the divine, powerful, and wealthy. However, what it means to make a portrait its subject, form, method, and medium has expanded beyond those previous confines.

There has been a democratization of both subject matter, and practitioners. In reconceptualizing many of the old categories, as well as ushering in a variety of new ones, successive generations of artists have interrogated our received images of race, class, beauty, gender, sexuality.

On display January 31 February 29, 2020.

This is a juried exhibition for artists working in drawing across all mediums. This exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age or older.

Claire Voon is a freelance arts journalist and critic who lives in Chicago. Her writing has appeared in publications including the New York Times, ARTnews,The Art Newspaper, Artsy, New York magazine, and Garage.
