Group exhibition: Selfie - Art Collector

Courtesy: Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo

In 2013 the word 'selfie' was voted the Word of the Year by Oxford University Press. This exhibition will examine the social media phenomenon of the selfie and its historical precedents. Using self-portraiture as the focus, the exhibition will crowd source selfies, allowing members of the public to contribute to the exhibition. By examining the selfies of a particular age group in a particular locale, a slice of society can be made visible – its aspirations writ large. A selection of historical photographs (from the collections of WPCC and the Art Gallery of NSW) will provide a context for the development of photographic processes as well as the shifting social use of photography.

Exhibition opens: 6pm Friday 2 May 2014
Exhibition closes: 8 June 2014
Location: WPCC, 76 Wingewarra Street, Dubbo, NSW 2830
