Goucher College is pleased to present Rebecca Marimutu: Portraits (Contact), the artist’s first solo exhibition in Baltimore, of photographs and collages from her 2022-23 series.

Marimutu explores the notions of self, identity, and portraiture through combinations of digital and analog photography, which she intercepts manually through drawing, painting, collage, and sculptural and photographic processes.

After Marimutu first worked in analog photography, utilizing more traditional forms and concepts as an undergraduate student at SUNY Albany, during the pandemic she began exploring digital photography, creating images of cropped parts of her body and face and recollaging them. More than a catalog of the pieces, in an era in which selfies are ubiquitous, they slow down and offer an exegetical encounter with what constitutes a portrayal of not just her particular face, but of a more universal question, of the relationship to one’s face, and to identities in general.
