Beyond Likeness: Contemporary Works opens at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (Canada)

Library and Archives Canada is presenting Beyond Likeness: Contemporary Works at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. Beyond Likeness, a travelling exhibition, explores the evolving concept of portraiture from more traditional representations of likeness to works that challenge the conventions of the genre. Beyond Likeness features works by 23 contemporary artists including those by Irene F. Whittome, Jane Ash Poitras, Pascal Grandmaison, Lucie Chan and Arnaud Maggs. The subjects of these portraits range from known figures, such as writer Margaret Atwood, former Governor General of Canada Michaƫlle Jean, artist Bill Reid, musician Melissa Auf der Maur, and filmmaker Deepa Mehta, to lesser known figures, such as the residents of Richmond, British Columbia
