The Other Is the Mirror of the Self was a collective exhibition featuring MCAD international students who, after removing themselves from the comfort of their native countries, cultures, and languages, happen to live and work in Minneapolis. As evidenced in their work, on a daily basis they must navigate cultural identities and deal with issues of miscommunication.
The aim of the show was to empower a multicultural community of unique, hybrid perspectives and give it a platform to open the dialogue with a larger public, connect with more stories, and possibly help others navigate being the “other.”

The exhibition took place in Gallery 148 at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, during March 2018.
