Creating ourselves

by Emily Butler | 15 June 2017
Category: Art & Design
Synopsis
Accompanying a year-long display of the ISelf Collection at the Whitechapel Gallery, this publication examines contemporary artists' responses to individual identity, the body and the human condition. From Surrealist selfies to feminist self-portraiture, the ISelf Collection explores identity and the human condition through the central themes of birth, death, sexuality, love, pain and joy. Taking the display of the collection at Whitechapel Gallery as its springboard, this book looks generally at the question of the self in modern and contemporary art, and the ways in which artists are thinking about being and identity as an individual, in relation to others, to society and the wider world. Featuring works by a world-class roster of artists including Francis Alÿs, Fiona Banner, Lynda Benglis, Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, Alex Katz, Sarah Lucas, Mike Nelson, Cindy Sherman, John Stezaker and Wolfgang Tillmans, this fully illustrated catalogue also includes essays by Glenn Adamson, Frances Borzello, Nicholas Cullinan and Amelia Jones, as well as a selection of quotes by influential writers and theorists as chosen by some of the artists included.
