Taking Arnaud Maggs’s dramatic 48-part portrait of the Kingston’s Orford String Quartet as a starting point, Tracing Self and Other presents a selection of portraits and self-portraits from Agnes’s contemporary art collection. This exhibition considers some of the ways we know (or fail to know) one another and ourselves, through a range of artist’s approaches to capturing those complicated points where cool perception, memory, incomprehension, passion and compassion collide. The featured works are by Stephen Andrews, Joseph Hartman, Daniel Hughes, York Lethbridge, Arnaud Maggs, Chris Miner, Allyson Mitchell and Deirdre Logue, Jamasie Padluk Pitseolak, Lisa Visser and Joyce Wieland.
