Experience WHO ARE WE – a new project by Max Dean that explores ideas of choice, self-expression and co-authorship. WHO ARE WE invites attendees at Art Toronto 2022 to participate as both artist and subject in this interactive installation.
Commissioned by the Portrait Gallery of Canada, the interactive installation by Max Dean and the Itinerant Photo Studio (McAlister Zeller-Newman and Andrew Savery-Whiteway), invites participants to select one of 88+ hats and pose for a portrait captured within the exhibition. The images are archived by the Portrait Gallery of Canada for digital exploration.
The Portrait Gallery of Canada (PGC) is an independent social memory organisation working to understand the role of portraiture in the Digital Age.
