Infinite Mirror: Images of American Identity
Oct 25, 2012 – Dec 19, 2012
Featuring Luis Jimenez, Jacob Lawrence, Tomie Arai, Faith Ringgold, Elizabeth Catlett, and numerous emerging artists.
Using portraiture to depict experiences of the country's multicultural populations, the exhibition features more than 60 multi-media works by first generation Americans and emerging new immigrant artists.
Four main themes run through Infinite Mirror: self-selection, pride, assimilation, and protest, providing audiences with the opportunity to re-examine both the story and storytellers of the quintessential “American dream.”
Largely based in portraiture, the exhibition reflects how individuals present themselves to the world and the pride they feel for their origins, values, and personal accomplishments. Included are such internationally renowned artists as Luis Jimenez, Tomie Arai, Faith Ringgold and the late Elizabeth Catlett.
Infinite Mirror is developed by Artrain, Inc. and Brandywine Workshop, Philadelphia, PA and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC. Presented with support from the Institute of Museum & Library Services and the National Endowment for the Arts.
