Controlled Identity 
Portraiture from the DePauw University Permanent Art Collection
February 5 – July 15, 2018
Peeler Art Center, University Gallery, lower level

The DePauw University Permanent Art Collection houses over 200 “portraits”, the majority of which have never been on display during their time with the University. Controlled Identity offers a space and a time for such objects to not only be seen, but to be showcased. These portraits span across media, across cultures, and across time to showcase the best of the best, as well as to point out the vast use of the “portrait” as a visual means to communicate objectification, identification, and subjectification. 
 
Spring 2018 at the Peeler Galleries is focused on displaying works from our own collection, from our own students, and from our own community. 
 
Controlled Identity features over fifty works from the DePauw University Permanent Art Collection from across media, across cultures, and across time alongside student works from surrounding Putnam County schools.
