Photographer Jaimie Warren’s first solo museum exhibition, You Are So Beautiful in the Face, opens at Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art this Friday. Warren’s photographs are theatrical and fun with a caricature-esque quality that dispels common conceptions of the photographic portrait. Her work is inevitably compared to that of Cindy Sherman, however Warren’s theatricality is more reflexive of her true dramatic and multifaceted personality than to pay homage to identity of an “other”. Aperture released her first monograph, Don’t You Feel Better as part of the Tiny Vices series, curated by Tim Barber.
