I was pleased to be part of this discussion hosted by Jenn Dierdorf
on July 16, 2018. Art practice and artist identity are inseparable
ideas, as artists pull from life experiences to influence their
work. An art practice creates a space to confront and work through
difficult or unresolved aspects of identity. While some artists
focus specifically on body/identity politics, others create work
indirectly related to identity such as connections, structure,
place, process, and/or medium.
