The exhibition features a global, intergenerational group of contemporary artists who explore the evolving role of video and photography in an era of digital communication and social media. Their work considers what it means to be an artist in a society where online culture is omnipresent and new platforms for self-expression are constantly evolving.  

We encourage you to think about your definition of self-representation and self-fashioning, as many artists in the exhibition do. Submit a video portrait of up to ten seconds using this Google Form. Feel welcome to also post it on Instagram and tag @princetonu_artmuseum. Be sure to visit the exhibition for inspiration. Submissions are due Monday, July 11, and select submissions will be featured on the Museum’s social media channels and temporarily featured during a celebration at Art on Hulfish on Thursday, July 21, at 5:30 p.m. 

Join us on Thursday, June 30, at 5:30 p.m. for a workshop with Christopher Lopez to learn how to create your own video portrait using your smartphone.
