Deborah Roberts features in 'True Likeness'
"Portraits serve as expressions of identity, popular taste, social standing and documents of who, when and where. Representing self in the best light or seeing others in understandable terms, are motives behind why we record images of each other for rituals, history, art making and status. How could any genre be more important? Yet with so many categories of portraiture in our daily lives, this imagery is often taken for granted."
Co-curated by Tom Stanley and Lia Newman, 'True Likeness' is an exhibition of contemporary portraits spanning video, photography, painting, collage, papercut, sculpture, printmaking and drawing. Artists included in the exhibition hail from across the USA and explore what it means to be American today.
Participating artists include: Dan Robert Miller, Sam Doyle, Gene Merritt, Chris Sullivan, Bill Thelen, Juan R. Fuentes, Endia Beal, Deborah Roberts, Kameron Neal, Deborah Luster, Wendy Red Star, Antonius-Tin Bui, Raymond Grubb, Holly Keogh, John Monteith, Amir H. Fallah, LaToya Ruby Frazier, and Mickalene Thomas.
