Spring 2024 Intersections of Identity: Expression, Exchange, and Hybridity

What constitutes identity, and how do people navigate, form, and reform their sense of self? How can the study of art and its history help us to consider the diverse identities expressed by visual culture and its creators? This series seeks to amplify the voices of scholars and artists whose work explores individual and collective identities as those intersect with notions of the body, dis/ability, gender, heritage, and race.
