Parkett is pleased to announce (Self) Portraits, a survey exhibition of over ninety portraits and self-portraits made by artists especially for Parkett in the last three decades. On view at Parkett’s Zurich Space, the artists included in this retrospective expand, challenge, transform, and push forward the traditional parameters of the portrait and self-portrait. The show and its theme provide a new perspective on Parkett’s 33 years of direct collaborations with 270 artists from around the world.

For as long as people have been making art, they have been portraying themselves and others. The artists included in this exhibition employ a wide array of techniques, media, and methods, including printmaking, photography, collage, and sculpture, among others. Works on view range from portraits by Andy Warhol, Marlene Dumas, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, to self-portraits by Martin Kippenberger, Gillian Wearing, and Ed Atkins. Also on view are non-traditional, symbolic and indirect portraits including among others a small-scale sculptural sound work by Laurie Anderson, Douglas Gordon’s bite into a sheet of plain white paper, and Rirkrit Tiravanija’s edition of the artist’s own Ray Ban glasses with engraved poetic phrases. Through the use of both traditional and conceptual representation, the works explore the subjective, emotional, physical, or political identities of their subjects.
