The notion of “out” and “in” is also explored in the photographic works of Borek, though to a vastly different effect.

Borek notes that his fascination with urban decay has made him “able to turn the most stunning scenery into drab Eastern Europe.” Where Valenzuela’s concern is specifically with the position of the Other in America, and Javani’s saddened, unidentifiable figures express neither place of origin or emigration, Borek’s scenes vigorously bring the viewer out of America and into his place of communist, often bleak, origin.

She explores personal issues of identity and documentation in photography and hand-drawn markings.

She confirms in her artist statement that “as an Iranian growing up in post-1979 Tehran, I have experienced separation, uprooting, and longing in its different manifestations.” Her broken imagery in photo collages suggests an alienated, displaced, and aching personhood.

In a country home to and defined by immigrants, how can it be that none of the complexities of such lives are welcomed in the mainstream? It is the original gap—the source of the wage gap, generational gap, gender gap—it is the representational gap.

It is a gap so severe that it creates dichotomies from the onset.

The works in this group show individually express the challenges and complexities of immigrant life in America, occupying the space between our lofty multicultural values and our whitewashed reality.

Issues of official identity documentation are explored through abstracted, disembodied imagery in Golnar Adili’s (Iranian born) work.

Despite the multitude of multicultural claims—especially in academia and the liberal arts—multicultural people are still very much the Other.

Where the American Dream most frequently falls short is the societal damnation of the outsider.

The gap is so rooted in our expectations that an exhibition eliminating the voice of the mainstream inherently conjures associations of activism and advocacy—and is not simply considered to be completing the story.

Culture observes its contents through a singular lens, filtering perceptions and concepts through the normalizing experience, which determines what is good and worthwhile, and what is otherwise foreign and dangerous.1The dominant mainstream distorts the extent to which art institutions can represent and reflect the diversity of humanity.2 The larger problem begins at the grassroots, community-based, local gallery level.
