Exhibit Opening: Other Crusoes, Other Islands
Other Crusoes, Other Islands: Mapping a Complex Legacy interrogates the troubled legacy of Daniel Defoe’s seminal English novel, The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, of York, Mariner, first published in 1719. It also explores how creators have pushed back against the colonialist, hyper-masculine, and racist ethos of the text by using the castaway narrative to explore identity, otherness, and the role of gendered and racialized ideas in constructing the self.
