“Novelty1” presents a critical departure from the conventional idea of the immigrant experience that is often generalized. Eschewing reductive descriptions, it offers a nuanced exploration of identities.

The show’s seemingly random and unsophisticated curation intentionally reflects the heterogeneity and unpredictability of the diasporic belonging. Each work is a subjective articulation of its creator’s journey, collectively illustrating how they interact with new environments and cultures.

In “Novelty1,” identity is not a monolithic entity but a spectrum of personal experiences.
