Please join us for the opening of the exhibition Me and My Selfie.

PRESS PREVIEW: 3-6pm
MEMBER PREVIEW: 5-6pm
PUBLIC OPENING: 6-8pm

Me and My Selfie explores the immediate and evolving impact of the selfie—the dominant form of vernacular photography today—defined here as a photographic image of and by a person from an arm’s length or using a mirror, often taken on a device that is not exclusively a camera, and shared through text, email or social media. The images showcased have been submitted, as well as sourced online, and are presented exclusively on screens to highlight where selfies are most often created and viewed.

Will this phenomenon globally improve self-image? Or foster extreme narcissism and insecurity? Will we tire of seeing ourselves, or treasure these intangible elements of our lives? This exhibit presents more questions than answers—we encourage you to add your voice, your thoughts, and yes, your selfie to the dialogue. New selfies will appear online and throughout the exhibition using the hashtag #selfie_pcnw.
