The multi-medium exhibition explores how sight and visuality can limit or expand one’s understanding of identity, belonging, and being. How is the body, a permeable border just as national borders prove futile in resisting viruses, as well as perpetuate false notions of self and other, citizen and foreigner? The artwork created for Hopkins Hall Gallery shares thematic components of re-contextualizing and fragmenting perceptions of the human body, exploring self-authorship, and personal expression. Shared techniques and concepts include fragmentation, reflection, refraction, and repetition to both amplify and deflect notions of looking while embracing experimentation, as well as the potential of failure. Common themes that emerged when students discussed their ideas and artwork include the possibilities of an autonomous self and the ability of an artist to present worlds outside of the false binaries and social codes that continue to permeate notions of sexuality, gender, and race. In the development of creative projects, students asked questions related to issues of representation and expressed the need to bring joy in our lives, to create a safe space of listening, and a world that supports well-being and mental health.
