“This salon will explore how contemporary artists subvert, disassemble, and undo the standard language we have to talk about identity. In doing so, they offer new and surprising paradigms for framing and exploring very old questions. We take up “identity” as a point of access, identity as mode for collective meaning-making, and identity as the exquisite and universal search to mediate who we would like to be through how we wish to be seen.” Read the full salon statement from Nora Khan
