"The art of selfie". UK gallery celebrates self-portraits through the ages (VIDEO)

And at London’s Saatchi Gallery, what is hailed as the world’s first exhibition exploring the history of the selfie “from the old masters to the present day”, is making quite an impression.

“The selfie has become probably the most expansionist form of visual communication that we have experienced in generations and so, for that reason, whether you are running a cultural institution or not, you can’t ignore it,” the gallery’s curator and CEO Nigel Hurst told Euronews.
