National Self-Portrait Prize | UQ Art Museum, Brisbane
11 November – 18 February 2018
Congratulations to Lisa Reid and Terry Williams who are both finalists in the 2017 National Self-Portrait Prize, showing at UQ Art Museum. Titled Look at me looking at you, the award exhibition is curated by Glenn Barkley and Holly Williams. The show posits the roles that the spectator plays in the construction of an image, the exchange between the viewer and maker that drives an image or object. With the self as subject, this can be reduced to an intimate conversation that might take place in the gallery space itself or at some future time, as if someone has passed on a message to be later revealed and savoured.
