Memorials of Identity"Memorials of Identity" features nine new media works by seven international artists dealing with issues of identity and quotidian reality. In these works, the artists individually explore memories, personal legacies and aspects of their backgrounds in an effort to express the political and historical realities of their countries. This juxtaposing of past and present helps them, and us, to define identity and meaning. A fully illustrated catalog with essays accompanying the exhibition is available via our online bookstore.
