Nine rising artists will display their work and share the motivation behind their pieces. This semester, the students created work addressing the topic of intersectionality — a term used to describe the overlapping or intersecting social identities and related systems of oppression, domination, or discrimination. Students were asked to embrace their differences or question their oppression. Issues they face vary from racism to islamophobia to cyberbullying and so many others.
