MAPPING IDENTITY – March 19 – April 30, 2010
Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery
Whitehead Campus Center/Haverford College

Curators: Carol Solomon, Visiting Associate Professor & Janet Yoon ‘10

This exhibition focuses on issues of transcultural identity in a global
society. It presents the work of eleven artists who negotiate the
terrain of cosmopolitanism, hybridity, diaspora, the effects of
displacement, exile, and the state of the in-between – that liminal
space which characterizes the unmoored condition experienced by an
increasing number of people in our transient world. Paintings, prints,
photographs, videos and sculpture are included. The artists are Fariba
Alam (American/Bangladeshi), Zoulikha Bouabdellah (French/Algerian),
María Magdalena Campos-Pons (Cuban/Nigerian/American), Lalla Essaydi
(Moroccan/American), Gonkar Gyatso (Tibetan/British), Mona Hatoum
(British/Palestinian), Glenn Kaino (American/Japanese), Daniel Kojo
Schrade (German/Ghanaian), Zineb Sedira (French/Algerian), Shahzia
Sikander (Pakistani/American), and Do-Ho Suh (Korean).
