ON VIEW: I SEE YOU: The Politics of Being

January 26- June 1, 2014

Levine Center for the Arts
551 South Tryon Street

This exhibition presents the work of six contemporary artists who expand the constructs of female identity in the 21st century. Surveying the range of ideas and illusions of the feminine mystique, this exhibition explores how women of the African Diaspora are seen, from their perspective and through the eyes of others. Juxtaposing historical ideologies and the contemporary, and self-presentation and imposed representation, the viewer is centered within a global community of image making and identity from a female perspective. Whether through implications of the body, or figurative representations of women, this mixed-media exhibition explores the artists' desires to deconstruct and redefine history, identity and culture.

This exhibition was organized by the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture.
