"Perspectives" presents art focusing on the cultural identity and autobiographical storytelling by invited artists. These artists’ works reflect on our stories – our devotions, memories, childhood circumstances, displacement of vulnerable communities, environmental issues, loss, and the process of mourning. Many are connections between people and nature, and people of different countries and beliefs. Can street life be portrayed as a story to give understanding and compassion and broaden our own thought process? How can the use of human hair create an intimate dialog and focus the viewer’s attention on the body? Can a portrait reveal the inner struggle of a woman to survive, torn between cooperating with the social systems of contemporary life and finding their own lives?

Artists Jean Michel Dissake, Dalit Gurevich, Russ Ritell, Mary Ting, and Jayoung Yoon convey life stories.
