The Performative Self Portrait

May 13 - November 12, 2023

HEMPHILL is pleased to share the inclusion of Renée Stout's, Red Room at Five (A), in The Performative Self Portrait at the RISD Museum in Providence, RI.

This exhibition explores the work of photographers who turn the camera back upon themselves. From capturing themselves in shadows and reflections to trying on alternative or speculative identities, The Performative Self-Portrait explores the body as material and medium and photography as vehicle to consider ways artists use self-portraiture to enact the self, question history, and articulate identity. Made between 1930 and the present, works in the exhibition range from new acquisitions to older works on view for the first time.
