It’s the weekend, so who feels like coming to the art gallery with me? This one is rather special as you do not have to wander too far from the (blog)house at all. Where am I taking you this time? Down and under to the National Portrait Gallery , and into the secreted rooms of their online exhibition, ‘Animated: Self Portraits Online’…
This is one very inspirational gallery – I have never experienced anything like it. The curators Michael Desmond and Gillian Raymond give a perfect introduction to the work, describing it as a virtual exhibition without being physically present in a gallery.
My friend Michi always sends me inspirational emails, with links to things I would never ever have known about. She also has a thing for weird medical facts and images and unfortunately sometimes she sends me horrific stories that make me cringe. She now knows I cannot handle it and so kindly filters out the weird and wacky medical finds and leaves me with the pretty, arty and super cool stuff. She loves going to art galleries and is always asking me along when I’m in town. Since I am not in town, she sent this art gallery to me. What a doll! And I am now sharing it with you.
The exhibition has been open since October and will run until December 2008. Check it out now.
