“An Artist Selects: Portraits from the Collection”
Curated by Dawoud Bey
Weatherspoon Museum of Art, Greensboro, NC

This special Atrium exhibition is of portraits from the permanent collection curated by the renowned Chicago-based photographer, Dawoud Bey, whose own work [was] on view in the exhibition "Class Pictures", through September 7. Each work was selected for its ability to create a momentary sense of engagement with the individual portrayed, reminding us that, in spite of our seeming differences, we are bound together in common humanity. Bey’s atrium exhibition opened on August 28, in conjunction with his lecture and dialogue with Weatherspoon curator Xandra Edens.

John Ahearn, Elizabeth Catlett, Chuck Close, Susanna Coffey, Catherine Opie, Red Grooms, Alex Katz, Nicholas Nixon, Robert Phillip, August Schwabe, Elizabeth O’Neill Verner
