Identity art is a well-established genre that has produced much debate and written discourse. Much of the resulting work tends to rely on, thus ultimately perpetuate, common stereotypes. This show collects art not about one’s self but about others. The typical formula has been reversed in order to illustrate other people, cultures and identities. Artists will inhabit a space between what they know of their own culture/ ethnicity/political or moral beliefs and how they or their ideas are interpreted by another typically more dominant culture. Artists of many cultural, racial, religious and political backgrounds, using mediums just as varied, have all created works assuming the perspective of someone else. To express oneself is a natural impulse. In order to attempt to express another, these artists have purposefully put themselves in a position where morality and ethics are virtually impossible to uphold and where distortion and misrepresentation are inevitable.

Opening Reception: Fri November 2, 7 pm to 10 pm

May Pang's 1970s Photos Capture an Intimate Side of Celebrity, Opening July 26th at Winkel Gallery

In October of 1973, Pang accompanied Lennon to Los Angeles to promote his album "Mind Games." What followed was an incredible 18 month adventure of star-studded parties, road trips, and unparalleled (if not uneven) creative output leading to Lennon’s comeback success. All the while, she took photos.
