The gallery identifies Ms. Hamilton as an artist who "wrestles with the social and geo-political constructions of gender, race, language and history through performance, installation, drawing, photography and video.''
Is anyone here as fatigued as I am by relentless identity politics and such trendy but empty expressions as "constructions of gender, race, language and history'' that sound as if they come from the mouth of a bad sociology professor?
