March 19-April 30, 2010

Mapping Identity explores aspects of contemporary cultural identity and the effects of displacement, exile, transnationalism, hybridity, cosmopolitanism, and the state of the in-between, described by the curators as “that liminal space which characterizes the unmoored condition experienced by an increasing number of people in our transient world.”

Paintings, prints, photographs, videos and sculpture by the following artists will be included: Fariba Alam (American/Bangladeshi), Zoulikha Bouabdellah (French/Algerian), María Magdalena Campos-Pons (Cuban/Nigerian/American), Lalla Essaydi (Moroccan/American), Gonkar Gyatso (Tibetan/British), Mona Hatoum (British/Palestinian), Glenn Kaino (American/Japanese), Daniel Kojo Schrade (German/Ghanaian), Zineb Sedira (French/Algerian), Shahzia Sikander (Pakistani/American), and Do-Ho Suh (Korean).

The exhibition takes place in conjunction with Professor Solomon’s Haverford course “Art and Cultural Identity.”
