In this exhibition, four contemporary artists of color engage in reflection on the complexity of identity, sometimes pushing back on misrepresentations, including stereotypes and cultural appropriation, other times presenting alternatives. Akujixxv, Devyn Galindo, Panteha Abareshi and Carolina Hicks’ artworks address the body as a site of personal agency, political activism, and vulnerability, while acknowledging that these topics are not necessarily discrete. Whether in the form of a photograph or an illustration, the emotionally evocative works convey multidimensional realities that challenge divisions of the physical and mental, the cerebral and visceral, and the spiritual and the material.
