Someone Like You- Selections From the Hara Museum Collection
This event has ended.
In portraits, whether painting or photography, the artist must depict the subject’s unique expression and physical attributes while also striving to reflect the society and spirit of the age. Once used to celebrate the model’s attainment of a certain rank in society, the portrait as a means of expression is being transformed by the daily snapshots of today’s smart phones and digital cameras. This exhibition offers a look at the expressive worlds opened up by contemporary portraits with works by Nobuyoshi Araki, Miwa Yanagi, Tadanori Yokoo, Tracy Emin, Robert Rauschenberg, and Francesca Woodman.
