The first ever selfie show at the Saatchi Gallery

 

Organised by the Saatchi Gallery, “From Selfie to Self-Expression” is the first exhibition dedicated to the selfie. Here we see it presented as a veritable art work whose history is explored through different clichés and celebrity self-portraits.
