Through The Selfie Lens

Hour 1:          Are our images and presentations of ourselves changing in the age of social media and do these changes reflect trends in the art world? We’ll talk this hour with Gabriel Ritter, curator at the Dallas Museum of Art which is currently exhibiting the career retrospective Cindy Sherman. We’ll also be joined by Erin K. Freeman, who studies narcissism and peer assessment at the University of Dallas and Jordan Frith who focuses on social media and location and image-based apps like Instagram at the University of North Texas. Ritter speaks at the DMA Thursday at 7:30 about the genre of self-portraiture and contemporary non-Western artists. Find tickets here.
