Additional Information:

Organized in sections devoted to the single, double, and group portrait, this exhibition presents a fundamentally new and exciting account of how people view themselves, their significant others, and their tribes. Included among some 130 works in many media are 50 from the Zimmerli’s collection and 80 loans from private and public collections around the country. The Zimmerli’s rich holdings of American, European, Russian, and Soviet art give this exhibition a distinct character, while loans from public and private collections offer a global perspective. The diversity of subjects in age, ethnicity, gender, and class reflects the global village that we increasingly inhabit.
