The Artist’s Mirror: Self Portraits
Glenbow, Calgary, AB - To Jan 16, 2019
Few subjects are as compelling as an artist’s self-portrait. Whether tempered by an emotional state, a social setting or a political position, the images artists draw, paint and photograph of themselves may be profoundly revealing or veiled and enigmatic. This exhibition, drawn from the collections of Library and Archives Canada and Glenbow, includes historical and contemporary works by Raymonde April, Emily Carr, James Hill, Yousuf Karsh and Norval Morriseau, among many others.
