FACE TO FACE - Arthaus Orakei

by Mia Straka in


YVONNE SHAW + MIA STRAKA + TRISH CAMPBELL + NAT TOZER + LAURA MARSH

curated by Claire Ulenberg - exhibition 26 August - 9 September

'Face to Face' is an exhibition of 5 women artists and their reimagining of the portrait genre. How women see themselves and others is crucial at this time when identity politics are rife and the shrine of the selfie seems a never ending disposable roll of daily imagery on social media. 

As we navigate our way through our individual identity we slide between the blurred boundaries of privacy and the public social arena. 'Face to Face' brings us back to the essence of close interactions between people, the artist, photographer, viewer and participant.
