UH Arts + Culture proudly present Together – an exhibition of portraits from the University of Hertfordshire Art Collection.
A small snapshot into the multiplicity of human experience, every portrait captures a moment in a person’s life – through the lens of the sitter, artist, or sponsor. Spanning a wide range of styles, media and approaches taken to portraiture, from the 18th century to the modern day, the works propose varied and often unconventional ways of representing an individual.
The portraits in the exhibition are diverse and yet, relatable. By sharing stories, they invite opportunities for empathy and ‘togetherness’. They look directly at us or purposefully away, sitting on the threshold of their worlds, and inviting us to connect to their different stories.
