From Selfie to Self-Expression: Saatchi Gallery

With everyone these days chronicling their lives through selfies, it’s never been a better time to take stock of the process. In March 2017, the Saatchi Gallery will be showing a host of them. From Barack Obama’s notorious selfie with Helle Thorning-Schmidt and David Cameron at Nelson Mandela’s funeral, to earlier manifestations of the self-portrait such as those captured by Van Gogh and Cindy Sherman. Saatchi has partnered with Huawei, the smartphone brand (appropriately enough) for the show and invites its public to submit their own selfies for possible inclusion.
