On view March 13 through April 14, 2003
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 15, 5-7 p.m.

The museum’s main galleries will feature Genetic Self- Portrait, an internationally acclaimed photographic installation in which New York-based artist Gary Schneider employs various medical-imaging techniques to depict his entire physical makeup from the inside out. By making art that reveals the invisible world of his own cells, chromosomes, and DNA sequencing, Schneider contributes to the larger discourse that surrounds the impact of genetics on our daily lives. Aided by doctors and geneticists, Schneider has created a poetic and highly personal approach to visualizing the elemental depths of his own identity. The portrait that emerges is at once singular and universal in its powerful portrayal of what it means to be human.

Schneider’s work is included in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Boston Museum of Fine Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Yale University Art Gallery, and the International Center of Photography and has been reviewed or featured in Artforum, Art on Paper, The New York Times, and Le Temps, among other publications
