Face-to-Face: Looking at Objects That Look at You

Let’s admit it: We’re obsessed with our own faces. Not just our literal face we stare at every morning in the mirror, but the human face in all of its mystery and vast, complex expression. There’s a reason why artists have been depicting the human face since recorded history. Face-to-Face examines this long tradition in art by looking at how different cultures have traditionally depicted this very human part of ourselves. Some aim to create the ideal face, while others focus on capturing specific facial expressions. The exhibit also has some analysis of how different cultures depict themselves versus different ethnic groups. Every single face you look at will get you thinking and wondering about the depths of human perception.
