cultural switch

Amherst, MA - Mead Art Museum at Amherst College presents The Third Space: Cultural Identity Today, on view through June 8, 2008. This exhibition considers cultural identity in a global society. It explores the effects of displacement, alienation, exile, diaspora, transnationalism, hybridity, and cosmopolitanism. The title The Third Space is taken from the work of the influential cultural and post-colonial theorist Homi Bhabha; it refers to the interstices between colliding cultures, a liminal space “which gives rise to something different, something new and unrecognizable, a new area of negotiation of meaning and representation.”
