The Jean Pigozzi African Art Collection
The Double: Identity and Difference in Art Since 1900 -National Gallery of Arts – Washington DC
from 15/05/2022 to 05/09/2022The Double: Identity and Difference in Art Since 1900 is the first major exhibition to consider how and why artists have employed doubled formats to explore perceptual, conceptual, and psychological themes. Presenting more than 120 works made between the beginning of the 20th century and today, this expansive show is organized in four parts: seeing double; reversal; dilemma structures; and the doubled and divided self. Among major themes, artists in the exhibition explore questions of identity and difference—the difference between the original work and a copy, the identity of the art with the artist, and especially self-identity as defined by our own unconscious, by society, as well as by race, gender, sexuality, and other forms of differentiation.
