Sitting Pretty

New twists on an old genre: Artists give portraiture a second look.

  1. 1. “The Evolution of the Digital Portrait”

    At ClampArt through August 17

    Nancy Burson’s late-seventies composite portraits of starlets like Bette Davis, Audrey Hepburn, and Sophia Loren (made possible by MIT-developed software that was ultimately purchased by the FBI) are shown alongside works by nine of her contemporaries.

  2. 2. “A New American Portrait”

    At Jen Bekman through August 3

    Patients, retirees, half-naked strangers, and the artists themselves are pictured in raw, narrative-driven settings, emphasizing the medium’s intimacy.
