This year’s conference will focus on our visual arts community’s interpretation, promotion, and usage of, as well as its reaction to and impact on the concept of identity. Panels will investigate the appropriation of Native American and First Nation cultures, the identity of Islamic art, loss of self and history in assimilation, and a culture of silence within the curatorial community. A new FOCUS session will open a dialogue on the issues surrounding African Art. We will also feature a workshop with Dr. Kenneth V. Hardy, Ph.D., Clinical & Organizational Consultant, Eikenberg Institute for Relationships on Becoming and Being a Cross-Racial Ally.
