Despite differences in cultural backgrounds, experiences, and approaches, the fourteen women artists in this exhibition explore some of the issues linking contemporary global society. Influenced by migrant cultures and readily available information through the Internet, their multi-media artworks present broad ideas of what culture, origin, home, identity, and human values might signify in a time of accelerated globalization. Meaning is found in how each artist weaves her personal narrative into artistic representation, allowing accessibility through shared experience and embedded knowledge. The artists featured in this exhibition were selected because they share certain visual and conceptual sensibilities, by their metaphorical use of materials, willingness to share the intimate and personal, their confrontation of stereotypes, regard for beauty, and immersion in process.
