Who are you? Is your inner character revealed, like the ancient Greeks believed, by the composition of your features? Or does the answer have nothing to do with your face? Twenty-two artists explore the question in ME: An Exhibition of Contemporary Self-Portraiture, highlighting the intersections between psyche, mirror and other.

Curated by Sugarlift and Juxtapoz contributing editor Sasha Bogojev and presented at New York’s High Line Nine, the ME exhibition runs January 16–30th, 2020 and will feature paintings and drawings by 22 international artists as well as guest speakers exploring self-portraiture throughout art history and contemporary culture.
