You will act as a curator and curate an art exhibit on the topic of IDENTITY and the ways in which visual culture reflects and engenders identity. Choose three artworks or popular culture images based on the following criteria that impact you and affect your understanding of identity in some way. Label each image and then answer the following questions for each image. Your writing needs to be thoughtful and analytical. Support your analysis with information from class readings and discussions. Follow general MLA formatting guidelines and edit your writing so that your thoughts are clearly expressed (pay attention to syntax). Label all images with: Artist. Title. Date. Media, dimensions.
