The current positioning of contemporary figurative art is particularly strong, notions around race, gender, war, to privacy, social media, and of course love. We are living in a time that’s ripe with debate over what it means to be a human in one kind of body or another.

 As with landscape, portraiture becomes pertinent when it breaks out of its straightjacket and offers something more than a tastefully composed and skillfully executed representation of someone. “Identification” will bring together a group of outstanding artists whose works exhibit the countless ways we can view the figure.
