The ALBERTINA MODERN exhibition The Face shows selected works of contemporary portrait photography from the collection of the ALBERTINA Museum. These photographs by artists both international and Austrian show just how multifaceted portraiture can be: they range from poignant studies of famous personalities to portraits of artists in their studios to projects encompassing whole series of photographs that explore the portraited individuals and their living environments. The photographs on exhibit deal with themes such as cultural identity, personal relationships, and diverse realms of experience as well as questions pertaining to individuals’ origins and their own selves.

The presented selection includes works by Nancy Lee Katz, Richard Avedon, Gottfried Helnwein, Chuck Close, and Franz Hubmann.

The exhibition is on view at the ALBERTINA MODERN from 27 July until 6 November 2022.
