Description - Material Identities by Joanna Sofaer
Material Identities examines the way that individuals use material objects as tools for projecting aspects of their identities.
Considers the way identity is fashioned, launched, used, and admired in the material world.
Contributors intervene from the disciplines of art history, anthropology, design and material culture.
Considers contrasting media - painting, print, sculpture, dress, coinage, architecture, furniture, luxury items, and interior design.
Explores the complexity of identity through the intersection notions of gender, ethnicity, age, sexuality, and class.
