"The exhibition deconstructs a singular notion of national identity to convey the United States’ kaleidoscopic diversity. Through a combination of digital, analogue, conceptual and archival approaches, the sixteen photographers exhibited here offer a collective rebuke to a foundational legacy of white male cultural hegemony. By acutely interrogating the nuanced landscape of American identity and its ideological elisions, their work helps to broaden the lexicon of the country’s visual culture and the people it represents."
