Simryn Gill in 'Self-conscious: contemporary portraiture' at MUMA
1 February – 7 April 2012

Featuring a range of works drawn from the Monash University Collection, this exhibition explores some of the many ways in which artists approach contemporary portraiture and represent different modes of identity.

Portraiture allows us to dwell on one of the most fascinating of subjects - ourselves. The act of self reflection and the study of others can be fraught, humourous and enlightening, whilst also revealing artistic processes and modes of philosophical address, laid bare in the work of art.
