Fascinating Faces: Museum of Portraits
■Period:22 March, 2013 - 02 July, 2013
■Venue:Asia Gallery B
“FACE,” it tremendously attracts many of us and even nails our mind down. In art, few themes have recurred as a motif so much as faces – a perennial art theme. Especially after the invention of photography, faces have been the subject of art as easily photographed and then made into printed matters. Nowadays, our society is being overflown by such fascinating faces. This exhibition brings together mainly photographs, paintings, and numerous “portraits” works in which the photographer and artist’s focus on expressing a face is very clear. The exhibition includes self-portraiture, group photographs, portraits of celebrities, and famous politicians, etc. A more careful gaze to those portraits may allow you to view the mystery of the face
