The Pain and Power of Intersecting Identities - Reception
Exhibition on View: January 20 - June 30, 2018
Manning Academic Center Creative Lounge (S232), Owings Mills North Campus
Kimberle Crenshaw in her 2015 Washington Post opinion piece described intersectionality as "...Vulnerabilities that reflect the intersection of racism, sexism, class oppression, transphobia, able-ism, and more."
This exhibition showcases the results of students' explorations and examinations of their identities, and how the intersections of these identities impacts their lives. Many of the photos represent identities that are seldom reflected in the media. Through the lens of reflective photography, and with critical writing practice, students reveal and process both the power and pain that lie at their identity intersections.
