Portrait23: Identity

Portraiture. Not as you know it.
Mia Boe and Kate Beynon both feature in ‘Portrait23: Identity’ at the National Portrait Gallery until 18 June 2023.
‘Portrait23: Identity’ is a major exhibition of new work from multi-award-winning contemporary Australian artists and collectives working across every state and territory. Twenty-three artists and collectives present work about who they are and what it means to represent themselves, their communities, histories and contemporary society. They break open the genre with deeply personal evocations of themes that resonate collectively, such as cultural knowledge, feminism, visibility/invisibility, activism and journeys of migration.
