Journeys Through Art: The Self & the Wider World #7 | GEAR Innovative International School

Exploring what constitutes the personal, and the facets and significance of identity in society.

28 February, 2018 - 28 February, 2018

The Self & the Wider World exhibition and workshop presents paintings, sculptures, photographs and prints, as well as metal work, silverware and textiles—showcasing the diversity in expressions of identity. Drawing upon a range of visual representations from utilitarian and ritual objects in the domestic sphere to clothing, portraits, and more abstract narratives, it explores relationships between the self and others in personal, political, cultural and social contexts. Including a walk-through, the workshop prompts participants to unpack the nuanced nature of identities and the complex processes that shape them – emphasising the mutability of the self and its representation in art.
