Performing the Portrait:
The Photographs of J. Shimon & J. Lindemann

Curated by Rachel Vander Weit

September 3-24, 2009

U R NOT A ★ examines the ability of photography to elicit a performance in the posture of the sitter. Stories and identities unfold before the camera, while the portrait becomes a vehicle for the subject's own performed persona. These portraits capture young misfits searching for an unattainable coolness in a Midwestern town.
