Being Human: Portraits from the Syracuse University Art Museum

September 2–October 16, 2022

Portraiture is often defined as the art of depicting exact likeness or appearance, yet it varies greatly through time and place, in cultures and traditions. The crafting of a subject’s identity may challenge our expectations and assumptions about what form a portrait can take. This exhibition of portraits, ranging from Elizabeth Catlett, Kalyani Devi, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn, Max Weber, and others, displays a visual dialogue between both artist and artist, and artist and viewer, a place to begin a conversation.

This exhibition is curated by Syracuse University Art Museum and organized by Lucinda Dukes Edinberg and Thomas May.
