Constructed Identities at CMA

December 10, 2014



Constructed Identities
Cleveland Museum of Art
December 14, 2014 –  April 26, 2015

Opening this Sunday Dec. 14, the Cleveland Museum of Art’s latest exhibition, Constructed Identities, primarily uses photography from its own collection to examine the medium’s ability to create identities – both real and fictional.

Highlights include Andy Warhol’s Little Red Notebook with Polaroid photos of Mick Jagger being Mick Jagger, Henri Cartier-Bresson’s intimate portrayal of the family life of Robert F. Kennedy, as well as Patrick Nagatani’s 50-part visual chronicle of Zen monk Ryoichi’s archeological expeditions leading to the discovery of time travel.

Constructed Identities is free and open to the public, and runs through Apr. 26.
