Selfie-culture is older than you might think. Long before smartphones and instant filters, artists like Vincent van Gogh were using the age-old medium of portraiture to convey, accentuate, and obscure parts of the self in ways that are strikingly similar to how people today use selfies to represent identity and accrue the cultural capital of 'likes'.
In the Picture is an exploration of Van Gogh's famous self-portraits. These portraits invite viewers to think about this intersection of image and identity; what is shown, what is not, and what these reveal to us about the selfhood that transcends the technology of any given era.
World-famous self-portraits from the Dutch master's oeuvre, alongside other seminal works like Edward Munch's Self-Portrait in Hell, Francis Bacon's Homage to Van Gogh, and Thérèse Schwartze's Portrait of Lizzy Ansingh make up some of the 75 works on show at this fascinating exhibition. Do yourself a favor and check it out!
