Mirror, Mirror: Portraits from the Collection

May 19, 2001 - September 16, 2001

AWE Gallery

To complement Steven Andrews: Likeness is an exhibition of portraits from the AGW collection selected by Steven Andrews himself.

Mirror, Mirror extends Andrews’ inquiries into ideas about identity and the similarities between people. Historical and contemporary paintings spanning several hundred years are brought together in a way that creates poetic relationships between the artworks and the people depicted.The display points out how the genre of portraiture has changed over hundreds of years. The portraits are arranged to emphasize the power of the gaze, both that of the person depicted and that of the viewer.

This exhibition continues our ongoing series, Artists Select, in which artists are invited to respond to the AGW collection, resulting in fresh and unique interpretations.
