Allan Stone Projects in New York City is pleased to be presenting an exhibition showcasing artist self-images.
Opening on February 25, “Tête à Tête: Portraits in Dialogue” is a tantalizing show that will feature a number of outstanding portraits and self-portraits at Allan Stone Projects in New York City. As it includes a number of varying styles, mediums, and eras, visitors are sure to discover much to delight the eyes.
Among the traditional examples will be selections from expressionist and modernist artists as well. Included in the exhibition are Robert Arneson, Balthus, Bo Bartlett, William Beckman, Willem de Kooning, John DeAndrea, George Deem, Richard Estes, Arshile Gorky, John Graham, Susan Hauptman, Elizabeth King, Franz Kline, Diana Moore, John O’Reilly, Guy Pène du Bois, Stephen Cornelius Roberts, David Alfaro Siqueiros, James Weeks, and Jack Whitten.
The gallery suggests, “The exhibition will place portraits and self-portraits from various styles, mediums, and eras in close dialogue with one another highlighting the different approaches taken by artists in this genre. Self-portraits have been a means of self-examination and discovery for many artists throughout the history of art. The genre is a study of what it means to be human. It can be an historical account, a personal characterization or a memory. Portraits are representational but not necessarily realistic. This exhibition will illustrate a diversity of portraits from the objective, to the abstract, to the symbolic.”
“Tête à Tête: Portraits in Dialogue” opens on February 25 and will be on view until April 23.
