This event has ended.

Composed presents a selection of photo-based works by seven contemporary artists in the final gallery of the museum's permanent exhibition. Using conventional forms of photography—including traditional portraiture, photojournalism, and online profile pictures—the artists focus on the highly mediated politics of sex and desire. As a group, they build an emotional portrait of the overlapping national, ethnic, and sexual identities that make up our public and private lives. The artists capture these complex identities in moments that range from loving and devastating to transformative and awkward.
