Tell Me What You Think of Me

February 16 through March 13
Opening Reception: Monday, February 16 | 5 – 7 pm
Curator’s Lecture: Tuesday, February 17 | 2pm in Gallery [3]

Categories and definitions are tricky things, especially when they are used to define cultures. While this complex system is often used to identify and generalize cultures outside of the United States, it is also common for North Americans to experience the same type of categorization and definitions abroad.

Featuring the works of Donna Conlon, Jonathan Harker, Maximo Gonzalez, Artemio, Ricardo Cuevas, and Emilio Chapela, this exhibition looks at culture, stereotypes, and cultural classification with a lens of humor and irony, inviting the viewer to laugh while rethinking identity.
