A pop-up exhibition in Shoreditch is exploring the '#ArtoftheSelfie' with a full-on selfie gallery.

The selfie gallery is hosted by King & McGraw, a London art retailer. It examines the history and evolution of the selfie, from Andy Warhol's iconic and innovative pieces to the commercialized and highly popular self-photography of today's smartphone world. The exhibition will also host a huge range of workshops and lectures around the concept of the selfie.

Instagram stars will discuss their success and teach audiences how to take their own perfect selfies. Fashion experts will analyze the rise and importance of the self-taken photograph, and an artist will even lead a workshop in charcoal self-portraiture. It's sure to be an illuminating and relevant exhibition.
