THE NEW PORTRAIT

What characterizes today's portrait? The portrait is one of the most classic and well known genres in the history of art. The artistic representation of a human being, which is usually limited to the head and chest area, seems more exciting today than ever with the variety of technical and artistic possibilities. But what is it that fascinates us so much about the image of a human being? We want to get closer to what contemporary portraiture is all about! The exhibition "The New Portrait" unites extraordinary contemporary artists who each proclaim their specific approach and aesthetic vision. From abstract positions to the figurative, from the colorful to the minimalist, størpunkt displays a wide variety of international artistic positions in order to – through their compilation – give the portrait of today a face.
