What defines who we are? Race? Ethnicity? Gender? Sexuality? Class? Religion? Are these categories fluid or fixed? Singular or plural? These questions animate Art and Identity, an exhibition of modern and contemporary art curated by Zoe Morales Martinez (’21). In recent decades artists such as Salomón Huerta, Kerry James Marshall, and Helen Zughaib have investigated how identity is perceived and experienced. Highlighting works by these artists and others from USD’s growing collection of fine art prints, Art and Identity considers the multiple, intersecting forces that make up who we are and how we are seen. 

Exhibition on view March 15 - May 28, 2021

Due to uncertainties surrounding the global pandemic, University Galleries' actual open hours are subject to guidance provided by USD's Covid-19 Action Team.
