Investigating Identity. Identity is the way we perceive and express ourselves.

Investigating Identity

Factors and conditions that an individual is born with—such as heritage, , or one’s body—often play a role in defining one’s . However, many aspects of a person’s identity change throughout his or her life. People’s experiences can alter how they see themselves or are perceived by others. Conversely, their identities also influence the decisions they make: Individuals choose their friends, adopt certain fashions, and align themselves with political beliefs based on their identities.

Many artists use their work to express, explore, and question ideas about identity. Wifredo Lam. Augustus of Primaporta. Sant'Apollinare in Classe, Ravenna.
