The endless search to 'find' our identity

"Notes from Tervuren'' (gouache, collage and ink on sheet music), by Radcliffe Bailey, at Samson Gallery, Boston through May 28.

His  symbolism-laden work explores African-American and international black identity and how individuals may have arrived at their subjective racial, familial, political and national identities.  As with many artists these days, there's a strong focus on issues of individual and group identity.
