The DePaul Museum of Art and DePaul University Library have partnered to create research guides to accompany DPAM exhibitions. This guide serves as a starting point for conducting research about the artists, works of art, and context of items in the exhibition.
This exhibition addresses broad themes of questioning exclusion and inequity, exploring geographies and memories and how they establish sense of self, concepts of home, culture, and family. Related concepts include: colonialism, natural environment, urban spaces, travel, performance and labor.
