Infinite Mirror: Images of American Identity
ongoing travelling exhibition
Artrain’s Infinite Mirror: Images of American Identity is currently traveling in partnership with International Arts & Artists to venues across the country through 2015.
Curated by Blake Bradford, director of education at the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia; Robert Lee, executive director of the Asian American Arts Center, New York; and Benito Huerta, associate professor & director of the Gallery at the University of Texas at Arlington.
This exhibition features 63 multi-media works including paintings, works on paper, photographs and video by culturally diverse artists from across the United States. Infinite Mirror is realized through the collective efforts of Artrain, Inc. and a group of independent curators selecting works of art by established and emerging American artists.
The central theme is the use of portraiture and figuration as symbols for emotional and social ideas. Artwork in the exhibition uses portraiture to depict circumstances and experiences of multicultural populations in present-day America. The artwork is personal, reflective, autobiographical and of a high technical quality, creating an exhibition that is both visually beautiful as well as socially relevant. The exhibition includes the work of first generation Americans and emerging new immigrant artists that examines issues and themes of race, gender, religion, history, politics and family.
Included are such internationally renowned artist as Luis Jimenez, Tomie Arai, Elizabeth Catlett and Faith Ringgold. Infinite Mirror was awarded grants from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the National Endowment for the Arts. Addition support from MetLife Foundation, the Michigan Council for the Arts and the International Fine Print Dealers Association.
