Murphy Lecture Series: Intersections of Identity: Expression, Exchange, and Hybridity DESCRIPTION:What constitutes identity, and how do people navigate, form, and reform their sense of self? And how can the study of art and its history help us to consider the diverse identities expressed by visual culture and its creators? This series seeks to amplify the voices of scholars and artists whose work explores individual and collective identities as those intersect with notions of the body, dis/ability, gender, heritage, and race. Presented by M. Carmen Lane, Artist, writer, and Director of the ATNSC: Center for Healing & Creative Leadership, "At the core of my practice is the investigation of the responsibilities inherent in carrying unfinished ancestral business in the body--individually and collectively within a system. Race, as a social construct, is often the primary lens for viewing and meaning making in North American western ideologies of individualism and resistance. However, race is both glue and lifeblood of the experiment called America. This slide based lecture is a discussion of identity politics, intersectionality as framework, the paradoxical nature of contemporary art making and the socially engaged possibilities in the development and nurturing of a non-accomodating heretical art practice."
