How do we create identity? Is it entirely of the self, or are there ancillary factors that influence the way we identify our persona. We The Hell am I, redresses and examines place, past histories, gender roles, traumas, contemporary mythologies, and movement through time and space as an amalgam and pastiche of complex identity construction. Featuring works by American artists, Liss LaFleur, Andrew Erdos, and Indigenous artists, Dylan McLaughlin and Nicholas Galanin, the exhibition seeks to illuminate the building blocks of identity and highlight their fluidity as evolutionary armor.

LIGHT YEAR is an ongoing project presented by 3_Search (Leo Kuelbs Collection, Glowing Bulbs and John Ensor Parker) in partnership with the DUMBO Improvement District and NYC DOT. Originally created for the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage in DUMBO, Brooklyn, in celebration of the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as the Year of Light and Light Art, LIGHT YEAR has become an international project, with presentations in DUMBO on the First Thursday of every month, as well as in Berlin, and online. Since its launch, LIGHT YEAR  has hosted the work of over 150 artists and curators from around the world.
