In concert with this year’s theme of Identity, participating Gallery 44 members present the exhibition DNA: Do Not Assume. DNA, an acronym for Deoxyribonucleic Acid, is the molecule that encodes all genetic information in all living organisms. As DNA constitutes our unique identity, it is a most apt name for an exhibit in which 29 persons express their individual identities through photography.
For this exhibit Gallery 44 members have appropriated the acronym to mean ‘Do Not Assume’, to emphasize the diverse artistic approaches represented in the show. The participants cooperate synergistically to become something greater than the sum of their collective sensibilities: a multi-celled, photographic life form evolving through art.
