From Friday May 4 through Sunday August 5, 2018 the Susquehanna Art Museum will present Identity Spectrum, a juried exhibition in the Lobby Gallery and Vault. As one of the fundamental aspects of personal identity, gender has been examined by artists throughout history. Society is experiencing the increased politicization of identity expression while contemporary boundaries and norms are constantly shifting. Works selected for this exhibition will provide unique perspectives on individual expression and the definition of gender, both visually and conceptually. These works may include, but are not limited to: ceramics, mixed media sculpture, painting, drawing, performance, video, and graphic design.
