The Project Gallery presents its first group show at its new space in Monastiraki. The exhibition Unusual Self-Portraits is curated by Konstantinos Basios and includes works by 32 artists whose work relates to ideas of self-representation and auto-portraiture. According to the curator, this subject relates to the current “impassioned trend” for selfies, which allows for an “effortless return to a pictorial tradition on terms that favour digital technology.” Essentially a painting exhibition that is in direct dialogue with the western tradition of the self-portrait, the show expands into other media and materials in order to expand its conceptual scope. It is, as the curator states, “a revisiting of an old expressive choice under the light of an intense era”.
