Sheldon Museum of Art presents Person of Interest
Works by (l to r) Radcliffe Bailey, Barkley Hendricks, and Yinka Shonibare CBE on view at Sheldon Museum of Art through July 5, 2020.

LINCOLN, NEB.- Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska presents Person of Interest, an exhibition of portraiture from the late nineteenth century to today.

The exhibition tests the very definition of the genre through depictions of the literal and abstracted body. It asks open-ended questions about self-fashioning, cultural memory, gender identity, and performance of identity. In so doing, Person of Interest prompts conversations about race and representation, institutional power, lived experience, and other relevant and timely issues.

Drawn from Sheldon’s holdings and the private collections of Karen and Robert Duncan and Kathryn and Marc LeBaron, the exhibition features works by Radcliffe Bailey, Willie Cole, Renée Cox, Lesley Dill, Barkley Hendricks, Robert Henri, Marisol, Zanele Muholi, Catherine Opie, Nathaniel Mary Quinn, John Singer Sargent, Jenny Saville, Cindy Sherman, Roger Shimomura, Yinka Shonibare CBE, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith, Renée Stout, Kehinde Wiley, and Zhang Huan, among others.

Picturing Identity: A conversation with artists Radcliffe Bailey, Renée Cox, and Renée Stout
On April 2, Radcliffe Bailey, Renée Cox, and Renée Stout will participate in a panel at Sheldon to discuss portraiture in the contexts of race and gender identity, cultural legacy, and memory. Janet Dees, Steven and Lisa Munster Tananbaum Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University, will moderate the conversation. For more information, visit

Person of Interest is on view through July 5, 2020. Admission is free.
