Hide / Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture

Oct 2010 - Feb 2011, National Portrait Gallery, Washington D.C.
Curator: David C. Ward, Jonathan Katz
This is the first major museum exhibition to focus on sexual difference in the making of modern American portraiture. Hide/Seek considers such themes as the role of sexual difference in depicting modern America; how artists explored the fluidity of sexuality and gender; how major themes in modern art—especially abstraction—were influenced by social marginalization; and how art reflected society’s evolving and changing attitudes toward sexuality, desire, and romantic attachment.
