Identity Within and Outside of Us

How do Artists Express Identity?

This selection of artworks show a variety of approaches and thoughts on the topic of identity. The artworks and artists explore how we see ourselves, as well as how the world around us looks back. Our ideas around identity change throughout our lives and are not always easy to express, but they are definitely worth considering.
