Brigham Young University Museum of Art:
October 23, 2009 – May 8, 2010
Opening: Thursday, October 22, 2009 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm
This exhibition explores how we shape our identities and how we seek to change perceptions of ourselves. Works by multiple local and international artists trace the influences of rituals, facades, social media, and the family from various perspectives, in examining what it means to be human beneath the veneers we accumulate in society.

Out Of Bounds
The first in a four-part exhibition series exploring how artists make work with and about video games, Out of Bounds is an exhibition investigating the architecture of game spaces. The exhibition will reflect upon how artists use game development software within their practice to comment upon the video game landscape, alongside our collective fascination with seeing what’s beneath the surface of both the games we play and the spaces we encounter on a daily basis.
Each exhibition in the series will be accompanied by a reading list of books that inspired the ideas behind the exhibition, as well as a number of books selected by the exhibiting artists that inform their practice, available to read within the gallery space.
With artworks from Aram Bartholl, Bob Bicknell-Knight, Alice Bucknell, Mario Mu, Rosa-Maria Nuutinen, Everest Pipkin, Amba Sayal-Bennett and Mathew Zefeldt, curated by Bob Bicknell-Knight.
