Victoria Miro is delighted to present I See You, an extended reality (XR) exhibition of paintings that brings together historical and contemporary works by female artists with a focus on depictions of male subjects. I See You is available exclusively online in our new virtual gallery on Vortic.
From portraits of family members to paintings of invented characters and those that challenge a traditional understanding of the ‘male gaze’, works on view invite us to consider the characteristics and qualities that connect or divide us along shifting lines of gender and how differences might be bridged by a shared understanding of consciousness – what it means to see and be seen. Complexities of gender are further elaborated upon by the artist’s role not only as painter but, in some instances, as mother or partner, where to be seen is also to be loved, nurtured, admired, or desired.
