Continuing its 32-year legacy of representing and exhibiting works devoted to contemporary fiber arts, browngrotta arts presents this year’s “Art in the Barn” multimedia group show Art + Identity
: an International View, in Wilton, Connecticut, from April 27 – May 5, 2019. The exhibition will feature more than 50 international artists whose works are included in major museum collections around the world.
With a representation of artists reflecting five continents, the exhibition will take an expansive survey of identity and art in a global world. The identity that each artist explores may be personal, political, social or cultural; it may reflect the influence of a hometown, country of birth or adoption, a place visited, or a region whose art has made an impression, an artistic or scientific movement or a broader focus on the effects globalization. Works by artists from, or influenced by, North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the UK will create an intriguing dialogue about the influence of culture, geography and personal experience and spur questions about the universality of art.
