Likeness: Portraits of Artists by Other Artists is the first exhibition to consider a recent history of artists’ representations of other artists— whether peers, colleagues or idols. The group exhibition features approximately 60 visually striking and conceptually diverse works in a range of mediums. Likeness: Portraits of Artists by Other Artist embraces a variety of approaches to portraiture made during the past three decades by a loose network of artists active in Los Angeles, New York, London, Berlin and elsewhere.
Artists in the exhibition include AA Bronson, Edgar Bryan, Chuck Close, Sam Durant, Nan Goldin, Mike Kelley, Robert Mapplethorpe, Dave Muller, Elizabeth Peyton, Richard Prince, James Welling, and others.
Likeness: Portraits of Artists by Other Artist is a traveling exhibition co−organized by the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts and Independent Curators International (ICI), and curated by Matthew Higgs, Director of White Columns in New York.
