About-Face

Gallery X
New Bedford, Massachusetts
April 8th, 2009 — May 3rd, 2009

This exhibition explores how representational figurative art uses the human face to redefine identity through portraiture.

Selected artists were asked to present two artworks depicting the same individual. The works were displayed beside each other in order to examine their similarities, differences, and the relationship between the creation of art and the construction of identity.
