From sheltering in place to nationwide protests, identity in our current contemporary culture has become both physical and virtual, as well as personal and communal. Fair Vanity creates playful pushes and thoughtful pulls between art and design; abstraction and figuration; vernacular culture and formality. How does the way we choose to identify ourselves differ from other’s perceptions of our identity?
Fair Vanity explores the personal as political through seven distinct, international practices.In the exhibition, Emily Dober reflects on femininity and the female form combining collage with her own gestures. Other featured artists are Lee Godie, Zina Hall (Creative Growth), Nnena Kalu (ActionSpace), Yvette Mayorga, Cherelle Sappleton and Emma Summerton.
