ME: An Exhibition of Contemporary Self-Portraiture


January 16-30, 2020

Who are you? Is your inner character revealed, like the ancient Greeks believed, by the composition of your features? Or does the answer have nothing to do with your face? Twenty-two artists explore the question in ME: An exhibition of contemporary self-portraiture highlighting the intersections between psyche, mirror and other.

Curated by Sugarlift and Juxtapoz’s Sasha Bogojev and presented at New York’s High Line Nine, the exhibition runs January 16–30th, 2020 and will feature paintings and drawings by 22 international artists as well as guest speakers exploring self-portraiture throughout art history and contemporary culture.

Artists: Aleah Chapin, Cesar Piette, Christian Rex van Minnen, Colin Chillag, Danica Lundy, Deng Shiqing, Dina Brodsky, Esiri Erheriene-Essi, Esteban Ocampo-Giraldo, Guno Park, Hiba Schahbaz, Jean-Pierre Roy, Jenny Morgan, Justin Liam O’Brien, Koichi Sato, Marcelo Daldoce, Maya Mason, Nicolas V. Sanchez, Paco Pomet, Prudence Flint, Sean Norvet, Tony Toscani
