In this series, artist Nathan Madrid investigates our culture’s perception of “the other" and "otherness,” ingroups and outgroups, to expose how prescribed labels determine society’s behavior toward a social group because of race, gender, sex, class, and religion. Through his paintings, viewers are actively challenged to situate themselves in relation to those depicted, to embrace the diversity of others or marginalize them.
Nathan Madrid's Portraits of 'The Others' will be on display at the Meadows Museum of Art at Centenary College of Louisiana, Sept. 5 through Nov. 22, 2017. Admission is free. For more information, visit the Meadows Museum of Art website.
