Widewalls - Portraits Through Time

As Charles Baudelaire once wrote, what could be more simple and more complex, more obvious and more profound than a portrait? Throughout the history of art, portraiture has been one of the most used and most important artistic genres. When exploring the plethora of artistic portraits through time, this powerful magic of portraiture becomes clear. In a selfie era we live in, it might be the moment to reexamine the idea of our own selves and those of others. A group exhibition entitled Face | Time will present portraits of times past and present, referencing the work of the Old Masters, while also pushing the subject into the 21st century. The idea of the self and time will be mediated through recent artworks by artists Isabella WatlingWanda BernardinoSabatino CersosimoEmma Hopkins, and Simon Davis.
