Revēlō (to show, uncover, reveal or disclose) Portraits and self-portraits have been fixtures in art for centuries. They can reveal both hidden and visible characteristics, create fantasies and myths, describe performative roles, and question identity. How do we construct and project our identity and reality via portraits? Do they open a window into ourselves and our lives, or protect our vulnerabilities? Disguising or revealing identity can take many forms. It can be of the other, the self, or the familiar; it can be figurative or expressed as an intimate or inanimate object. When portraying our personal reality, a portrait can be of a place, a thing, a concept, a feeling, a belief, an event, a moment, or a memory. Memories change over time and we can use the metaphor of an archaeological excavation as a way to remember previous experiences. Does a portrait represent a moment in time rather than a static, universal expression? Artists such as Cindy Sherman, Zanele Muholi, Vivian Maier, Hugh Mangum, and Samuel Fosso put versions of themselves in their work to explore the concepts of identity, reality, and message. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists were restricted to using themselves and their familiars as subjects. Who are we now?

Degenerate
In 1937, The Degenerate Art exhibition (Die Ausstellung "Entartete Kunst") was conceived and held in Nazi Germany, where party propagandists portrayed, mocked, and vilified the works of renowned modern artists as evidence of criminality and deviance. Nevertheless, the event was more popular with spectators than the accompanying state-sponsored exhibition intended to display the more classical type of art advocated by the regime. In the contemporary context, one could suspect a passionate photogr
