Self-Portrait Polaroids | Free Family Funday | November 2022


In November, we will be taking inspiration from Will Wilson's Critical Indigenous Photographic Exchange (CIPX) Project to create our very own expressive self-portraits. The self-portrait has existed for centuries, as early as the Renaissance. Ever since its emergence, the self-portrait has been a way to express yourself to others. With the Industrial Revolution and the advancement of technology, self-portraiture became more accessible to the everyday person. The camera (and later the cell phone) allowed for anyone to take part in the art of self-portraiture. With the CIPX Project, Wilson aims to show that Indigenous people are more than a stereotype of an identity but are intersectional-meaning that their identity, who they are, is made up of many aspects. Through choosing their own clothes and important items, the sitter is sharing who they are with Wilson as he shares the final photograph with them and then to the world, just as we will be doing with our self-portraits!
