The question of identity, on both an individual and community level, feels more pertinent in the current global climate than ever before. US NOW looks at how artists appropriate national and political figures, imagery, and iconography in order to address this subject in their work. The artworks on display cover a diverse range of media, from screenprint on paper to oil on canvas, digital screens to actual banknotes.
