ABOUT WHO WE WERE, WHO WE ARE, WHO WE WILL BE
Within the identity of any singular person, there are multiplicities. There are various versions of ourselves to consider: past/present/future, self at best/self at worst, self as part of various communities. Experience, ancestry, and environment come together to define the internal and external worlds of an individual human. These artists explore aspects of their identities- as parts of a whole, and as whole universes in and of themselves.
Featuring: Max Adrian, Julie Farstad, Gonzalo Hernandez, Judith G. Levy, Jason Lips, Alexandra Robinson, Chico Sierra, Harold Smith, Sara Sonié Joi Thompson-Ruffin, Jillian Youngbird
