About US IS THEM:

US IS THEM is a powerful exhibition of works by 42 international artists who confront issues of politics, religion, and racism. The exhibition presents more than 50 individual contemporary artworks across a diverse range of media including painting, sculpture, photography, and video. The artists in US IS THEM created enlightening and thoughtful works that challenge and rearrange stale notions of identity and obsolete notions of difference. US IS THEM originated at the Pizzuti Collection in Columbus, OH, and was organized by Curator Rebecca Ibel.
