I am not I – famous and forgotten portraits 8 June–31 December 2017

The exhibition I am not I approaches portraiture through a range of different themes and perspectives, while also providing an insight into the history and development of the genre. Themes explored include power and identity as well as memories and their preservation. The works on display cover the full range of portraiture, from imposing portrayal of royals and other powerful figures to intimate depictions of families, along with artists’ own self-portraits. In addition to celebrities and other notable figures, the exhibition also features personalities who, over the years, have been lost to obscurity along with portraits that, for one reason or another, have disappeared from public view. The time period covered by the exhibition extends from the 16th century until present day.
