The Sitter – Exhibition Opening in June at Blue Star Contemporary

The Sitter is an exhibition that will be at Blue Star Contemporary that will highlight works by artists using contemporary portraiture and figuration to build narratives and generate conversation around the subjects’ actions, experiences, or identities.

Utilizing diverse mediums, the exhibition highlights how contemporary artists are expanding how they define what a portrait is and how they can activate the figure. The sitter or subjects transcend the role of model or muse and are sometimes collaborators or activators, giving access to a broader context and unraveling complicated stories.

Featuring LaVaughn Belle, Suzette Bross, Ruth Leonela Buentello, Carmen Cartiness Johnson, Madison Cowles Serna, Natan Dvir, Sarah Fox, LaToya Hobbs, Loc Huynh, David Johnson and Philip Matthews, Zora Murff & Cruz Ortiz.

The Sitter will be on view from June 3, 2021 to September 5, 2021.
