Contemporary Identities: Invisible Gestures
Opening: November 12, 4:30 pm to 8 pm
Exhibition hours: November 12 through January 31 (Monday - Friday, 10 am - 6 pm; Saturdays 12 - 4 pm)
The exhibition showcases the cultural diversity of Iberoamerica through the art of photography, featuring work from artists from 18 countries of Latin America, Portugal and Spain.
Contemporary Identities: Invisible Gestures is an artistic reflection of a modern concern. It attempts to awaken a unified, yet personal, awareness of the impact of technology on the individual.
Around the world, people’s understanding of their identities has been shaped by the essential role of technology. We have constructed a cyber-culture in which digital media have become extensions of the body, giving them the potential to modify aspects of our sociability and our relationship to ourselves. The exhibition explores the search for intimacy, independence, and individuality, in a culture of pluralized identities.
This project is presented by the Iberoamerican Cultural Attachés Association (AACIA) at the Mexican Cultural Institute (2829 16th St. NW, Washington DC)
