Inspired by the quest of identity that occupied Rembrandt through his life, the North Carolina Museum of Art presents Self, Observed, the first exhibition of college student work juried by college students at the Museum. Exhibited concurrently with the Rembrandt in America exhibition October 30, 2011 through January 22, 2012. Self, Observed reexamines the function of portraiture and highlights the enduring influence of Rembrandt.
College students from across the country were invited to submit original self-portraits through this blog. A group of eight students from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill curated Self, Observed in collaboration with the NCMA Education Department. The group selected 41 works from over 160 submissions.
While the deadline has passed to submit both 2-d works and videos, you can continue to follow this blog to see images from the exhibition. You can also ask questions about the exhibition or visit the archive to see past blog posts.
