GLYPHS: ACTS OF INSCRIPTION builds on the premise that identities are constituted through acts of inscription—real or imagined—into the visual archives that constitute history, popular iconographies and artistic canons. GLYPHS probes the consequences of such acts on the poetic and political dimensions of representation, difference and visibility.
The exhibition program is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Pitzer College Art Galleries, the Pasadena Art Alliance, the Pitzer College Forum Fund, the Murray Pepper & Vicki Reynolds Pepper Distinguished Visiting Artist & Scholar Lecture Series Endowed Fund and the Endowed Fund for Media Studies.
