How do we meld our ethnic or cultural traditions with our lives as citizens in 21st-century America? What parts of our families' pasts help us to define ourselves in the present? And in an increasingly multiracial country, what role do racial categories play in constructing identity? This project explores these questions through artwork that takes signs and symbols from traditional cultures and translates them into a contemporary context, looking at shifts and changes in cultural meanings. The exhibition features installations by Washington artist Joe Feddersen and Hailey artist Bob Dix.
