Converging Voices: Gender and Identity – Group Show

Hofstra University Museum Presents “Converging Voices: Gender and Identity.”

How visual artists from different cultures depict gender roles in their work is the theme of“Converging Voices: Gender and Identity” at Hofstra University Museum, on display through December 15, 2017, at the Emily Lowe Gallery.

This original exhibition, curated by Karen T. Albert, Hofstra University Museum deputy director and chief curator, features international artists such as Ghada Amer, Mariam Ghani, Martine Gutierrez, Guerrilla Girls, Yee I-Lann, Zanele Muholi, Pinaree Sanpitak, Carrie Mae Weems, and Philemona Williamson.

Their works examine cultural and personal identity, question the stereotypes and social norms, and criticize the traditional relationship between gender and society. Their works differ greatly even as they address similar issues.

This exhibition is presented in association with the 17th Berkshire Conference on the History of Women, Genders, and Sexualities to be held at Hofstra University June 1-4, 2017.
