Check out our new website! www.dorfworld.com DORF announces Self-Portraits, a group exhibition that takes as its starting point the idea that an artist's work is a reflection of their identity and experience. These nine multidisciplinary artists explore the power and vulnerability in portraying oneself while confronting socio-political and socio-economic notions of culture, race, sexuality, gender, and religion. Through painting, sculpture, video, animation, ceramics, screen prints, installation and performance, Self Portraits pushes the boundaries of self-portraiture. Garcia’s work delves deeply into personal experiences while casting a broad glance across society and its perceived norms. Recently, his work includes social practice work and overtly political themes.
