Curated by Guillermo Creus

Though it is generally considered to be a formal, traditional and relatively staid artistic practice, portraiture nevertheless maintains some presence in the production of these twenty three young New York artists. In the prime examples that comprise this exhibition, these artists explore both the boundaries of portraiture – redefining it based on principles of representation and the question of how identities are constructed – as well as investigate its essence, its relationship to history and its relevance for contemporary art.
