07/04/2018 – Photo Theme: The Fluid Self
The Fluid Self – Identity and how we understand ourselves.
The very idea of identity is shifting, and artists are working to represent the new ways we understand ourselves. Identity is much less permanent and stable than it used to be – there are endless permutations of individual identity. A few years ago, people were talking about race or ethnicity, then body type, abilities, and age. Now we’re looking at the fluid self — identity as a vast and ever-changing range of ideas that should all be celebrated.
This will be a portrait/self-portrait based event.
