In Focus: Expressions exhibitions is set to open in Getty Museum on May 22nd.

What is it, that makes a portraiture enigmatic, captivating the audiences gaze? What makes a face unforgettable? Often, it’s not the beauty, which is in the eye of the beholder, and differs from culture to culture, it’s the facial expression. This season, Getty Museum dedicates an entire exhibition to this topic, showcasing 45 works drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection. 

On view from May 22nd through October 7th, the exhibition is a tribute to human face and emotions, captured in art. In Focus expires with the most inverse and ubiquitous expression, the smile, and also examines the other end of the spectrum— literal and figurative concept of mask, contrary to a candid photograph. This exhibition is curated by Karen Hellman, assistant curator of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum. Save the date!

聚焦:表达式展览将于5月22日在盖蒂博物馆(Getty Museum)开幕

是什么,使得肖像神秘迷人,引得观众凝视?又是什么让一张脸难忘?通常情况下,这不是那种在旁观者眼中的美,而是面部神情,而且从文化到文化之间有所不同。本季Getty博物馆为此展出了一个展览,展示了来自博物馆永久收藏的45件作品。

从5月22日到10月7日的展览,这次展览是对艺术中捕捉到的人脸和情感的高度赞扬。与率直的照片不同,以最反常和最无处不在的微笑来表达,并且也审视了光谱的另一端---文字和形象的概念。本次展览由J·保罗·盖蒂博物馆(J. Paul Getty Museum)照片助理策展人卡伦赫尔曼(Karen Hellman)策划。加入你的清单吧!
