Art from the Inside: Identity is showing now through Friday, February 24, 2022, at Gallery 120. Art shows and exhibitions are hosted at Gallery 120’s brick-and-mortar location in the atrium of the Fine Arts building on the Inver Hills Community College campus in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.

Identity¹

Identity can be defined as “the qualities, beliefs, personality traits, appearance, and/or expressions that characterize a person or group.” In this exhibit, the artists explore the construction and interpretation of how we see ourselves as individuals and how we see each other.

Identity catalog

The question “Who am I?” asks us all to consider the relationship between the individual and society. Human beings are a complex combination of who we innately are, informed by our lived experiences, our culture, our environments, by things we control and things we cannot control.

While some aspects of an individual’s identity may be fixed or considered immutable, many aspects of a person’s identity change throughout his or her life and carry different weights at different times throughout our life. How do we embrace the complex layers of our individual and shared humanity?

How do we crack open the rigid ways we define ourselves and the other. What does it feel like to give ourselves and others space to grow and grace to evolve? How do we open ourselves to the possibilities of hope, to change the story we tell ourselves and the stories we tell about the other.
