Inside Out: Portraits from the Permanent Collection
10 Feb, 2011 - 25 Sep, 2011
Almost from its invention, photography was an ideal medium for portraiture. But what is a portrait? As the author Richard Brilliant writes, "Making portraits is a response to the natural human tendency to think about oneself, of oneself in relationship to others, and of others in apparent relation to themselves..." Inside Out explores this question by looking at the many varieties of photographic portraiture, ranging from daguerreotypes to the interpretive portraiture of Arnold Newman, including the experimental approach of Man Ray and a view of Marilyn Monroe through time.
