Closing Jan 11th:
Who am I ?
IDENTITY: UNLIMITED EDITIONSSeptember 21, 2008 – January 11, 2009
The question of personal identity is a complex and constantly evolving process of self-knowledge that cannot be easily answered. What makes a person uniquely who they are is influenced by a myriad of factors including culture, ethnicity, gender, profession, psychology, values, and memory. Self identification in our modern, multicultural time may seem for some to be a riddle with unlimited possibilities. In collaboration with the Los Angeles Printmaking Society (LAPS), CAFAM hosts a juried exhibition of world class printmakers that ponders the age-old question of identity within the context of contemporary life. The artwork selected for Identity: Unlimited Editions represents a diverse range of personal expression as negotiated in this world of shifting and constantly evolving labels. Judith Amdur’s Fighting for My Life displays the blatant beauty of a human body surviving cancer; Joseph Vorgity’s The Boy Saint documents a spiritual journey influenced by, and eventually separated from, religious dogma; and Nancy Jo Hasselbacher records her mother’s genetic legacy through the physical imprint of her body.
