"Music is your own experience, your own thoughts, your wisdom. If you don't live it, it won't come out of your horn." - Charlie Parker
We've got a small group of portraits here, ranging from the 1400's up to 2009, and it's easy to see how different the people and their clothing look at different times in history. What may look odd or stuffy to us in the Frans Hals portrait from 1650 probably looked very normal to people at that time, just as the man in Kehinde Wiley's portrait from 2009, with a Yankees hat and plaid shirt, looks very normal to us now.
But we want to know: what do you think portraiture will look like in 2100? Will people still be taking photographs or making oil paintings then? Or will portraits be 3-D holograms or something futuristic like that? Create your own vision of a futuristic portrait and send it to us - we'll create a gallery of your ideas!
