Best art show about identity and relationships: I + THOU AT THE DUNEDIN FINE ART CENTER

Best art show about identity and relationships

We had a lot of great art shows about relationships this year (the St. Pete Pride shows come to mind), but the one with the largest scope, for me, was the Catherine Bergmann-curated I + Thou. I + Thou explored identity and relationships in a way that I had never seen before, inspired by the Martin Buber 1923 philosophy text that goes by the same name. Bergmann loves themes that lend themselves to diverse interpretations, and this was quite obvious with the various artistic representations of identity and relationships seen in I + Thou. It was a feast for the eyes and the mind. —Jennifer Ring
