Intersectionality, Art and Identity @ Read's Artspace Gallery
January 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
<![CDATA[Intersectionality, Art and Identity: Beyond Cosmopolitanism into Intersectionality The Read’s Art Space Gallery cordially invites you to the opening reception and silent auction of the exhibit, Intersectionality. Together we support the mission of the artist-run Reads’ Art Space Gallery that places Bridgeport on the map of the emerging Creative Economy. The exhibition 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. “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 Reads’ Art Space 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.”]]>
