About the exhibition:
Upon Closer Inspection brings together artworks from three artists who work across different media to explore personal history and lived experiences as they relate to the formation of individual and collective identity. Through drawing, painting, photography, textile, and performance, the selection of artwork from Adama Delphine Fawundu, Phung Huynh, and Claire A. Warden explores complexities of how cultural identity, agency, and representation inform everyday life.
