09 The first ever selfie show at the Saatchi Gallery

The first ever selfie show at the Saatchi Gallery

Photography

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.

And what if the selfie was an artistic medium unto itself? That’s the question being asked by the exhibition “From Selfie to Self-Expression” at the Saatchi Gallery, in partnership with mobile phone brand Huawei. Through the cult of selfies, from Obama to anonymous individuals, from early self-portraits by everyone from Frida Khalo to Rembrandt, this show assumes the selfie’s status as a new form of expression while questioning its creative potential. Our mobile phones and smartphones are now the tools of creation constantly exploring the digital era...

 

“From Selfie to Self Expression” January 23rd to March 19th at the Saatchi Gallery, Duke Of York's HQ, King's Rd, Chelsea, London.
