Body and Soul
In today’s social media-driven landscape, we are surrounded by portraits — from candid snapshots to highly-staged selfies. Body and Soul features 24 Utah-based artists and explores the lasting power of this classical genre across contemporary painting, photography, text-based installations, and more. Established tropes are both embraced and reinvented, presenting diverse approaches to portraiture as a means of commemoration, reflection, and social critique. From faithful likeness to fantasy and fracture, the power of portraits is that they are about more than what we look like; they reveal who we are.
