They come from around the world, the nine artists in the show of the same name opening this week at the Walker. Born in one part of the world, raised in another, and making art in an altogether different country, the artists selected by curator Bartholomew Ryan are, to no surprise, concerned with issues of provenance, biography, and identity in their work. The 40 pieces in the show feature a variety of media, such as installation, video, drawing, sculpture, neon, and... a Bloody Mary. Talk about relational aesthetics! Drink up. There will be live music and a talk with artist Danh Vo and singer-songwriter Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu) at 5 p.m. Thursday, October 24, and a free artist's talk with Natascha Sadr Haghighian at 12:15 p.m. Friday, October 25, at the Regis Center for Art. Check walkerartcenter.org for a complete list of related happenings. (Pictured: Hito Steyerl, How Not to Be Seen A Fucking Didactic Educational)
