Twenty-two artists from China will exhibit new works of "self-portraiture." We aim to stretch the limits of self-portrait to include a rich variety of modern interpretations of the self. Ranging from tangible records of the artists' lives to visual explorations of identity, we hope to provide a framework to indulge in socially acceptable self-consciousness and artistic exchange. Is self-portraiture relevant in a post-modern age? Or are these acts of futility? Is this just another opportunity for artists to indulge the Freudian id? Or is this a chance for artists to re-assess themselves? Whether self-portraiture gets closer to revealing the True Self is debatable. At minimum, we hope "Me! Me! Me!" gives gallery goers an opportunity to see artists concentrating on the act of observing themselves.
