PARAMUS, N.J. – A new exhibition in Gallery Bergen at Bergen Community College draws attention to the complex nature of individuality. “Identity Document,” on display through Wednesday, Dec. 13 with an opening reception taking place Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 6 p.m., brings together eight artists from diverse backgrounds featuring painting, sculpture, video, film and photography.

“Identity Document” showcases the work of artists C.J. Chueca, Amir H. Fallah, Carla Gannis, Rico Gatson, Andrew Gori and Ambre Kelly, Fariba Hajamadi, Jeannette Louie and Gustavo Prado. Located in West Hall at the College’s main campus (400 Paramus Road), the works explore and challenge the meaning of identity in today’s global society.

Gallery director Chris Bors curated the exhibition. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit Bergen.edu/gallery or email [email protected].
