Intersectionality, Art and Identity

Beyond Cosmopolitanism into Intersectionality

The exhibition at Read’s Artspace Gallery offers a contemporary framework to conceptualize the artist as a connector to a set of constantly shifting identities. Thematics of context, meaning, and time are addressed in various styles and media including: painting, sculpture, digital, collage, video and 3D fabrication.

Artists: Vasken Kalayjian, Liz Squillace, Adger Cowans, Yolanda Petrocelli, Daniel Lanzilotta

A new way of framing our sense of belonging

Intersectionality is the contemporary framework we selected to explore our identity construction in today’s reality. We go beyond the concept of cosmopolitanism that brings together likeminded people in their different voices and nationalities. The Intersectionality approach of Read’s Artspace addresses the complex and subtle interplay of our ethnicity, gender differences, forced migration and transnational population movements that shape various levels of invisible oppression and how they impact our identity construction and expression.
