ArtCenter's Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery presents This Is Not a Selfie: Photographic Self-Portraits from the Audrey and Sydney Irmas Collection.

This is Not a Selfie is touring show organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and comprises 65 photographers exploring and expanding the definition of the self-portrait. Ranging from early 19th-century experiments through contemporary digital techniques, the exhibit includes works by Diane Arbus, Robert Mapplethorpe, Catherine Opie, Cindy Sherman, Alfred Stieglitz, Lorna Simpson, and Andy Warhol.

A concurrent exhibition, You Are The Show, features a selection of photographic images by the college's alumni and students.

An illustrated catalogue accompanying This is Not a Selfie includes an essay by photography historian and guest curator Deborah Irmas and 50 extended written entries by Eve Schillo, LACMA assistant curator, the curatorial team at the Wallis Annenberg Photography Department at LACMA and a foreword by ArtCenter Photography and Imaging Chair Dennis Keeley.
