Gallery Shop Presents: Jeff Chester: This Curious Object
Thursday, June 8, 2017 to Sunday, July 9, 2017
Opening Reception • June 8, 6-9pm at Gallery Shop
In This Curious Object, Jeff Chester poses questions concerning identity through the intersection of historical portraiture and today’s social media selfie. Chester brings to the forefront that in the not-so-distant future, artificial intelligence and technological integration will challenge our identities in profound ways. Each work features the same lone figure which serves to illustrate an idea of a nonspecific person, yet also a sense of familiarity.
