Tai Shan Schierenberg featured in The Unselfish Selfie
The Atkinson is working with guest curator and artist Nahem Shoa to present The Unselfish Selfie. Alongside historic self-portraits, the exhibition shines a light on self-portraits by contemporary artists.
Throughout the history of art numerous artists have made self-portraits. Originally many of these represented the artist in the act of painting. They were a means of advertising the artist’s skill. The Unselfish Selfie charts the development of the self-portrait as a much more expressive medium, employed by artists to explore the human condition, painting themselves with unflattering honesty and creating images that evoke a sense of our shared humanity.
