Parrish Perspectives is a series of concentrated exhibitions that offers the Museum opportunities to respond spontaneously and directly to unique ways of thinking about art, artists, and the creative process.

In 2007, Connie Fox set up a mirror and a bookstand in her studio and began a series of drawings that would consume her energies for weeks. To this day, Fox says, she is not entirely sure where the idea came from since it is so markedly different from anything she has ever done. The self-portraits of German artist Max Beckmann (1884–1950) and photographs of the French writer Colette (Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette,1873–1954) inspired Fox to meld her own image with theirs and, in a suite of dazzling drawings, we see the results of this inventive collaboration.

Connie Fox: Self As... is made possible, in part, by the generous support of Audrey Flack, Nina Yankowitz and Barry Holden, and Danese/Corey.

Additional Parrish Perspectives exhibitions include:

Brian Gaman: Vanishing Point

Lindsay Morris: You Are You
