At Face Value | The National Self Portrait Collection at Garter Lane Arts Centre, Waterford


23 February to 28 April 2018

Garter Lane Arts Centre in partnership with the University of Limerick presents ‘At Face Value’, an exhibition of the National Self Portrait Collection curated by the Waterford Young Arts Critics.

Waterford Young Arts Critics have worked collaboratively with professional writers, artists, theatre practitioners, photographers, curators and arts managers to examine critical concerns and personal understandings of selfhood through this unique collection of self portraiture that question the evolving nature of self representation and the implications of the projected self in a digital age. ‘At Face Value’ presents self portraits by over 20 artists in the National Self Portrait Collection including Dorothy Cross, James Hanley, Vera Klute, Brian Duggan and Una Sealy, exhibited alongside photographic and mixed media interventions developed by the Waterford Young Arts Critics.

This exhibition continues alongside Borderland/Memento, a joint exhibition by artists Susanne Wawra and Joseph Heffernan, until April 28th 2018. Opening hours: 11am- 5.30pm Tuesday- Saturday and during evening performances.

Admission free. All welcome.
