Tour: "Eye to I: Self-Portraits from 1900 to Today" with Chief curator Brandon Brame Fortune

Join the National Portrait Gallery’s Chief Curator Brandon Brame Fortune for a tour of the National Portrait Gallery's exhibition, "Eye to I: Self-Portraits from 1900 to Today".

As people are confronted each day with “selfies” via social media and as they continue to examine the fluidity of contemporary identity, this is an opportune time to reassess the significance of self-portraiture in relation to the country’s history and culture.

The exhibition features more than 75 works by artists such as Josef Albers, Patricia Cronin, Imogen Cunningham, Elaine de Kooning, Edward Hopper, Joan Jonas, Jacob Lawrence, Alice Neel, Louise Nevelson, Diego Rivera, Lucas Samaras, Fritz Scholder, Roger Shimomura, Shahzia Sikander and Martin Wong.
