What is Art For #4: The Self-Portrait

Continuing the series of exhibitions drawn from the permanent collection of the Forrester Gallery.
How would you choose to present or explore your identity in a self-portrait? As part of this exhibition we have set up a ‘Selfie’ Station, come and visit the Gallery and have a try at making a self-portrait of your own using some of our props!

Or perhaps you would prefer to take a ‘selfie’ and send it to us at We will post it to an album on our Facebook page where we are exploring the question of whether the 'selfie' is the contemporary version of a self-portrait or actually something quite different.
