Keepin' it in the Family at the USF Contemporary Art Museum

USF CAM's next show, which opens with a reception Friday night, offers something for you to relate to.

Love 'em or hate 'em, everyone's got 'em. A Family Affair is a group exhibition exploring themes of family relationships and personal identity through photography, video, performance, and animation.

Artists Renee Cox, Kalup Linzy, Deborah Willis will talk about the work this Friday, but the show also includes LaToya Ruby Frazier, Jacolby Satterwhite, Hank Willis Thomas, and Corine Vermeulen. The artists show how personal and historical families shape their identities through topics of race, class and gender.

Don't get too serious though because comedy is present, especially in Linzy's works where he dresses in great drag costume and creates soap operas of his imaginary family tree. 

Free. Artist talk from 6-7 p.m. on Aug. 28 at Barness Recital Hall at USF School of Music, 4202 W Fowler Ave, Tampa, with reception to follow from 7-9 p.m. at USF CAM, 3821 USF Holly Drive, Tampa. 813-974-4133.
