Imprinted Bodies traces the notion of embodiment or corporality in contemporary Latino/a visual art and documentary. The exhibiting artists, originally from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Haiti, Mexico, Colombia, and American-born Latinos, examine the interplay between immigration, illness, ethnic relations, and identity, as well as their own participation in the formation of hybrid cultures. These experiences, involving displacement, relocation, and memories of home, uncover multi-layered disruptions of identity. Imprinted Bodies was curated by artist Sonia BŠez- HernŠndez and Morlan Gallery director, Andrea Fisher.
In recognition of September as Hispanic Heritage Month, the Morlan Gallery will provide a week of related programming called Project Alterity.
