In times long past, only the most powerful had pictures of themselves — only they could afford to commission a portrait. Now, in a nation where most people have endless photographs of themselves, a new exhibit returns to these portraits of the past to examine just how power was depicted. Using the concepts of French philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, students have analyzed themes and issues revolving around presentations and depictions of power in creating the portraits exhibited. Students examine identity and alternative power structures, the role of gender and class, contextual environments and associations, expression and psychology. —Brandi Terry
