Politics of Identity /

Poetry of Inclusion & Exclusion

November 12, 3P

Gallery 51, 51 Main Street, North Adams

For Politics of Identity - Poets are invited to zoom in or zoom out; re aim their telescope or grab a magnifying glass; to build a fence, or tear one down; to examine the politics of identity from the personal, social, or cultural perspective. Who belongs? Who gets to decide?

Poet? Interested in taking this challenge and sharing your work? Get on the list.

Politics of Identity will be presented in the physical context of the exhibition of photographs from the Freedom From Fear/Yellow Bowl Project. The Freedom From Fear/Yellow Bowl Project created by artist Setsuko Winchester is an outgrowth of the research Winchester has done around the history not only of the Japanese internment camps, but more broadly around Asian-American civil right issues over the last century.
