Multiple Identities: Crafting the artistic self through n arrative\, representation\, and metaphor

\n

 

\n

Upstairs at the Market Gallery is pleased to present “Multiple Identities: Crafting the artistic self through narrative\, representation\, and metaphor\,” a f our part multi-media exhibition of works by student artists. The exhibition was created in the Contemporary Art Theory and Practice program in the art department at Santa Monica College with Linda G Lopez\, Professor of Art.< /span>

\n

The theme of the work in this series is the personal and artistic i dentity as a shape shifting and self-constructed notion. Asked to deconstru ct and reappraise their personal “stories” and experiences through art maki ng\, the artists included in this exhibition reveal their own multiple\, of ten contradictory identities by exploring such themes as the male and femal e gaze\, longing and loss\, time and place\, stories\, memory and desire\, and diaspora.  The work includes a spectrum of media and genres that challe nge\, confront\, perform\, or project an authentic perspective regarding th e existential nature of the “self”.  The artist’s paintings\, performances\ , installation and photography provide the audience a prismatic lens by whi ch they may view their own notion of the self through a multi-media collabo rative series. The opening events are Saturday\, June 18 and Saturday\, Jun e 25\, with further exploration of the themes by selected artists\, on Satu rday\, July 23 and Saturday\, July 30.
