Art Exhibition: Tamara Dean and Portraits

4 December 2019

Tamara Dean
About Face: are you a boy or a girl?
Curators: Rhonda Davis and Kate Hargraves
Mirror 2: Portraits from the Collection, New Donations
Curators: Leonard Janiszweski and Andrew Simpson25 November – 21 February 2020
A Macquarie University Art Gallery exhibition

Tamara Dean’s About Face: are you a boy or a girl? challenges, with acute adroit, the preconceptions we associate with dress codes, hairstyles and facial features as gender specific. Comprised of androgynous faces, the portraits themselves pose questions of identity and the role it takes in shaping how the onlooker perceives that person to be.  Dean calls upon the viewer to reconceive the notion of identity as fluid and symbolic to the way we dress, look and act. The works are atmospherically characterised, using cinematic-lit backdrops that draw the viewer into the subject’s world with arresting beauty that extends the act of looking.

Mirror Mirror 2 explores portraiture within the context of a media-driven society running in parallel with the rise of the selfie. Evocative and thought-provoking, this exhibition depicts portraits in all guises from the grandiose celebrity, known to the public faces to the everyday private world of individuals. The efficacy that lies behind the creation of a self-portrait, continues to entice.

Joanna Braithwaite, Kathrin Longhurst, Michael Muir, Paul Newton, Kate Shaw and Sally Ross.

The interwoven thread that joins these two fascinating exhibitions are the way in which portraiture expands our views about the role of identity and the way in which that plays out in a variety of situations.
