She Views Herself showcases self-portraiture by emerging women artists from around the world. The process of self-examination that is revealed in the artists' paintings, sculptures, installations, videos and photographs exemplifies contemporary women's negotiation of evolving global concepts of beauty, personal empowerment, positive self-image and the complex interplay of gender and political status. Ultimately these artists' self-portraits probe the dynamic relationships between contemporary women's sense of self and their social and national identity. Viewers will be introduced to new, authentic avenues of introspection that transcend appearance, adapting arts symbols and surfaces to achieve personal revelation.
She Views Herself: Emerging Women Artists and the Self-Portrait, is organized by renowned artist and curator Doris Kloster.
