Exploring the Self


What is identity, and how does it define who we are as individuals, and how we behave collectively as a society? In Flight 19's Identity in Process, 18 contemporary Latino American artists attempt to foster a dialogue with the community that asks these very questions and explores the myriad concepts of identity via sculpture, painting, photography, graphics, installation, drawing and performance art. An exhibition curated by Manuel Lopez for Arte 2007 — the Bay-area-wide celebration of fine art and performance from Latin America — Identity in Process spotlights the talents of Guillermo Portieles, Giovanni Bosch, Carlos Rodriguez Cardenas, Maria Emilia, Edgar Sanchez-Cumbas, William Sosa, Monica Naugle, Carlos Manuel Soto, Alex Espalter-Torres and several others.

This Friday evening marks the exhibit's soft opening, with a reception Sat., Nov. 9. from 7 to 11 p.m. Oct. 26-Nov. 17, noon-5 p.m. Sat.-Sun. and by appointment, Flight 19 Gallery, Union Train Station Baggage Claim Building, 601 Nebraska Ave., Tampa, 813-247-2030.
