Description

Continuing its 32-year legacy of representing and exhibiting works devoted to contemporary fiber arts, browngrotta arts is proud to announce this year’s “Art in the Barn” multimedia group show "Art + Identity: an international view", in Wilton, Connecticut, from April 27 - May 5.

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.

Participating artists include: Adela Akers (US), Polly Barton (US), Michelene Beauchemin (Canada), Nancy Moore Bess (US), Marian Bijlenga (the Netherlands), Birgit Birkkjaer (Denmark), Lia Cook (US), Wlodzimierz Cygan (Poland), Neha Pura Dhir (India), Lizzie Farey (UK), Paul Furneaux (UK), Mary Giles (US), Susie Gillespie (UK), Agneta Hobin (Finland), Kazue Honma (Japan), Kiyomi Iwata (Japan), Peter and Ritzi Jacobi (Romania/Germany), Stéphanie Jacques (Belgium), Tim Johnson (UK), Christine Joy (US), Tamiko Kawata (US), Marianne Kemp (Netherlands), Anda Klancic (Slovenia), Lewis Knauss (US), Nancy Koenigsberg (US), Yasuhisa Kohyama (Japan), Irina Kolnesikova (Russia/Germany), Markku Kosonen (Finland), Lila Kulka (Poland), Kyoko Kumai (Japan), Gyöngy Laky (US), Sue Lawty (UK), Jennifer Falck-Linssen (US), Federica Luzzi (Italy), Rachel Max (UK), John McQueen (US), Mary Merkel-Hess (US), Norma Minkowitz (US), Judy Mulford (US), Nnenna Okore (Australia/Nigeria/US), Gudrun Pagter (Denmark), Eduardo Portillo & Mariá Eugenia Dávila (Venezuela), Lija Rage (Latvia), Ed Rossbach (US), Heidrun Schimmel (Germany), Toshio Sekiji (Kapan), Brigitte Bouquin Selles (France), Naoko Serino (Japan), Sylvia Seventy (US), Jin-Sook So (Korea), Aleksandra Stoyanov (Russia/Israel), Polly Sutton (US), Chiyoko Tanaka (Japan), Hideho Tanaka (Japan), Eva Vargo (Sweden), Ulla-Maija Vikman (Finland), Wendy Wahl (US), Gizella Warburton (UK), Katherine Westphal (US), Merja Winquist (Finland), Jiro Yonezawa (Japan), Carolina Yrarrázaval (Chile).
