Exhibition co-curated with Barbara O’Brien

The theater of the self takes center stage in Dressed Up, an exhibition of works in a range of media by artists Hope Gangloff, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Marcia Kure, and Neeta Madahar. Defining self-image as a conceptual view of the artist seen through their depictions of others, Dressed Up seeks to examine, critique, and expand notions of self-image in contemporary art.

Impacted by the uniquely complex and captivating intersections of nature, culture, artifice, and perception, the vivid expressions of the artists’ identities and personas unfold in their depictions of others. The resulting works reveal influences of the cultural, personal, and narrative visual vernacular. While the self-portrait remains paramount in the history of art, the works in Dressed Up reveal distinct aspects of the contemporary theater of the self in a broader global and conceptual context.
