The exhibition, “Your Documents Please,” reflects issues of identity and its documentation.
We asked participants to make an artwork about the size of a passport or smaller that functions visually or conceptually as if it were an identification document. “Documents” by more than 270 artists living in 26 countries are included.
The exhibition opened at the Museum of Arts and Crafts– Itami, Japan, in April 2008 and has travelled to alternative spaces including ZAIM artspace–Yokohama, 2B Gallery–Budapest, Galerie Kurt im Hirsch–Berlin, Z Gallery–Bratislava, and Galería Ajolote Arte Contemporáneo–Guadalajara. It is now scheduled for NYC in November 2010.
