National Gallery of Canada at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art


In Character: Self-Portrait of the Artist as Another

 

Since photography’s beginnings, artists have used their own body and self-image as subject matter, some turning it into the very basis of their practice. Photography has always been intertwined with the human propensity to look at others; the latter’s voyeurism taking over only where the photographer’s gaze leaves off. This exhibition, drawn from the collection of the National Gallery of Canada, presents works by acclaimed Canadian and international artists who explore the space between their own selves and that of another, expanding identity into the realm of role-playing through photographic self-portraiture.
