Have you every wanted to spend the day as someone else? Artists in Self Made explore issues of identity and representation, and raise questions about the notion of one stable “self.” Lauren Kalman, trained as a jeweler, considers the prosthetic possibilities of gold as a self-enhancement strategy. Cybèle Mendes’ slight alterations in persona in her self-portrait series address the complexities of identity framed by race, gender, and family history. Printmaker and painter Tara Misenheimer draws inspiration from historic beauty advertisements to honor and critique the feminine ideal. Caleb Cole wears other people’s clothes—literally—to suggest that the story we tell about ourselves might shift in profound (and sometimes humorous) ways when we change outfits.
