exhibition of contemporary artists explored the often difficult issues
of identity: how identity is not merely a personal choice, but is also
constructed by social, cultural, political, and economic forces; and how
we may either reject or ascribe to cultural definitions of the self. Sexual
preference, gender, and race were explored by the artists in an attempt
to examine the ways in which identity is a malleable, rather than a fixed
entity. The artists in the exhibition included Adrian Piper, Barbara Kruger,
Lyle Ashton Harris, Mary Kelly, Deborah Kass, and Emilio Cruz, among others.
