Identity in the Ottoman Empire

August 19 – November 9, 2019

An exploration of the diverse ethnic and religious identities that coexisted in the Ottoman Empire (ca. 1300-1922). Architecture, period photography, stamps, textiles, calligraphy, illustrated documents, and interactive displays bring to life this complex period in world history.


Portrait Mode

August 19 – November 9, 2019

Camera phones and social media have fueled a renaissance in portraiture. We are all now photographers and artists, with our friends, family, and pets serving as our inspiration. Whose creative genius is on display when you take a picture of your friend doing something great? This breakdown in authorship is particularly acute when artists depict other artists. This interactive exhibition places the visitor in the role of artist and influencer, drawing inspiration from both traditional and new portrait mediums.
