The Outwit 2016: American Portraiture Today
Now through Jan 2018.
Every three years, the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery invites artists across America to investigate the art of portraiture through the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition.
Established in 2006, it is the premier national competition celebrating excellence and innovation in portraiture. For the resulting exhibition, The Outwin 2016: American Portraiture Today, jurors selected 43 winning works from more than 2,500 entries. The artists tackle some of the most pressing topics in the cultural and political realms, including investigations of race and gender, the fragility of childhood in our increasingly complicated world, and the psychological impact of migration.
