Clues to the personality of a portrait’s subject are many times, literally, kept in the background. The symbols are as visible in the Dutch paintings from the early Renaissance as they are in the contemporary photojournalists’ environmental portrait. This exhibition will shine a light on modern symbolism with representative paintings in a variety of styles. To further illustrate the theme, there will be a video installation that enables viewers to perceive the change of a subject’s identity with changing backgrounds. Participating artists include painters Bill Suys, Dawn Whitelaw, Stanka Kordic and Katie Musolff, photojournalist Erwin Gebhard, portrait photographer Stephanie Bartz.
