Last week, the first museum survey of R. Luke DuBois's work opened at the John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota. In addition to new video work riffing on traditional circus posters that DuBois made during a residency at the museum, the show also will feature a sort of dual portrait of Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, which was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. Changing notions of how people can be portrayed—and how we choose to portray ourselves in social media—is one strain that runs through DuBois's diverse body of work.
