While Canada’s National Portrait Gallery project may have stopped, Propeller steps into the spaces left by its termination. We’re doing a portrait show! Artists from Auerbach to Zurbaran, and from antiquity to A.I, have made portraits — images of the human form and face, either familiar or mythic. There have been paintings, sculptures, monuments to historic figures, animal pictures, self-portraits, images of the trials of living and the rewards of perseverance… And photographs, so many important, powerful photographic portraits.
Artists in this exhibition add their contribution to the enduring dialogue of portraiture through various interpretations and media – pushing the boundaries of portraiture as we see them.
