Anti-Selfie Exhibition to bring Portraiture into the 21st Century

Jack Peat , The London Economic , October 26, 2016

An anti-selfie exhibition is set to run in London next week with the aim of bringing portraiture into the 21st century.

 

The pop-up show highlights the emptiness of our social media personas through revealing portraits which show their subjects’ flaws – and what it is to be human.

 

Dellasposa, a new London-based gallery, will host Face | Time which looks to bring to light the relevance of portraiture today through contemporary paintings which offer sincere portrayals of people – unlike our manufactured identities on social media.
