The Pera Museum is pleased to announce its new exhibition Look at Me!: Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection. The exhibition examines portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shape a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.


As Nimfa Bisbe Molin, the curator of the exhibition and the head of ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation Contemporary Art Collection, mentions in her article, “Portraiture today encompasses multiple ways of producing images of the human condition and exploring the complex notion of identity.” Divided into four thematic sections, “Spotlight on Emotion”, “The Conventions of Identity”, “The Memory of the Face”, and “Masks and Other Fictions”, the exhibition presents the works of Janine Antoni, Eduardo Arroyo, Juan Navarro Baldeweg, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Christian Boltanski, Rineke Dijkstra, Marlene Dumas, Esther Ferrer, Günther Förg, Curro González, Stefan Hablützel, Roni Horn, Sharon Lockhart, Pedro Mora, Vik Muniz, Óscar Muñoz, Bruce Nauman, Carlos Pazos, Cindy Sherman, Antoni Tàpies, Gillian Wearing, and Sue Williams.
