One Word: Identity A new form of expression

One Word: Identity

One Word: Identity was 529 Arts Avenue's pop up debut show in Brooklyn New york on July 29th, 2016.

the Interactive Gallery exhibit featured in in-depth interview documentary on identity from males from different racial backgrounds. from these interviews, Resident artists Emmanuel Knight (The serial Doodlist) and Gerard Thelemaque (the Pixelist) create a visual gallery telling each interviewed participant's story visualizing their words into art.

One work is a series that represents a public discussion, an open forum on modern topics such as social justice, race,community and culture to name a few. This series takes a single word from these topics and allows a group of participants ranging from different backgrounds, ages and races to define the target word in their own words followed with a group of questions.

What makes One Word special is it's ability to bring different perspectives to one concept from many perspectives. How we achieve this is through creating a documentary featuring of these interviews filled by a gallery exhibition of visual narrative of these stories through symbolism, storybording and other forms of visual and sequential art.
