Curated by CSUNâ€™s Art History Professor Mario Ontiveros, this
exhibition focuses on eight Los Angeles-based artists who reconfigure the genre
of self-portraiture. Utilizing their body, their likeness, and/or the
intimately personal, the artists encourage an investigation into representation
that lingers somewhere between its construction in response to material,
psychic, and sociopolitical conditions and those personas that one imagines,
shuns and/or desires. Artists include Michael Alvarez, Yreina Cervantez,
Christina FernÃ¡ndez, Harry Gamboa Jr., Sandra de la Loza, Shizu Salamando, Ana
Serrano and Mario Ybarra Jr. A full color catalog on the exhibition will be
available for purchase.
and gift store hours are Monday through Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., and on
Thursday, from noon to 8 p.m. For more information, call CSUNâ€™s Art Galleries
