Selves and Others

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

This exhibition features portraits of the self; of personas or avatars; of family members, lovers, and friends; and of strangers. Made from the nineteenth century to the present and organized thematically, the works in the exhibition were created by artists including Claude Cahun, Rineke Dijkstra, Man Ray, Cindy Sherman, and Gillian Wearing, among many others.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Selves and Others :

Long-time San Francisco art collectors Carla Emil (founder of C Project, a new organization committed to performance art) and Rich Silverstein have donated significant contemporary works to SFMOMA since the late 1990s; in this small survey, drawn from their gifts, portraiture by Claude Cahun, Rineke Dijkstra, Man Ray, Cindy Sherman and Gillian Wearing, among many others, gets its due.
