Boston Arts Academy is proud to present a group exhibition that investigates themes of language and identity in relationship to gender, class and race. The exhibition is structured around the demographic of artists in the school and confronts the subjectivity of being of color, class, feminist ideals, and the language we use to connect with one another. This presentation focuses on showing the work of marginalized artists of different class and race, including women, minorities, foreigners, gays and lesbians.
The exhibition features video, painting, sculpture, photography and works on paper by artists associated with building new social structures and/or highlighting an obscured experience. The artworks investigate the relationship between the visual and spoken language of identity and the geographical constructs developed in the western world. The works peer into personal memories, ancestral connections and a collective past. The works examine the relationship between power and privilege, or lack of, and uses historical references to expand on broader truths, while underscoring debates around social politics, identity and representation through contemporary art practices.
The aim for this presentation at Boston Arts Academy in this difficult socio-political time filled with suffering, is not to only inspire, but to bolster awareness and educate the next generation of artists.
Curated by former Visual Arts student, Silvi Naci (class of 2005).
