This portfolio will be co-curated by Stephanie Alaniz (Morgantown, West Virginia, USA) and Edie Skeard, http://edithskeard.com/ (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada) The mission of this portfolio exchange is to create a group of prints that address the history of the portrait through a contemporary lens. This exchange will critique the purpose of portraiture through deconstruction, misrepresentation, creating a portrait in unconventional ways such as through objects, different perspectives, or different parts of the body. In doing so, we hope to provide insight and commentary on the value of portraiture within our current cultural landscape — a world of definition, identity politics, racism, social media, and increasingly dichotomous systems of belief.
