"... [the exhibit] looks at work that challenges and reimagines the physical, emotional, and geographical boundaries of identity ... artists investigate the construction and destruction of identity, of what constitutes being through the use of their body, installations, books, interviews, videos, and paintings. The exhibition asks us to reflect on how, what, and why we are taking matters into our own hands through the works of artists who mobilize, respond, expose, heal, and rebuild together. Often, it is artists that lead efforts to address the needs of their community when the system, the government, and aid fall short."
