THE NEXT GENERATION
SELF-PORTRAITURE IN THE 21st CENTURY
THE RUTH BORCHARD COLLECTION EXHIBITION
7 June – 24 September 2016
Piano Nobile Kings Place
90 York Way, London UK
At the exhibition opening, a talk was given by the art critic Philip Vann – “NEXT GENERATION” SELF-PORTRAIT TALK.
The Next Generation Collection currently consists of 64 self-portraits and is continually growing, brought together through purchases from the biennial Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize, most recently held in 2015 at Piano Nobile Kings Place and won by Shanti Panchal. The Ruth Borchard Collection: The Next Generation will be the first occasion that the Next Generation Collection will be shown in its entirety, alongside a selection from the Original Collection to initiate a dialogue between the 20th and 21st portraiture.
