'Women's Identity XI' by Mwamba Chikwemba wonderful conceptual portrait of a black woman tight up in a daily routine. The artist focuses on subjects of femininity, authenticity, identity, and richness of black culture. Her models are often friends and relatives and noticing details of their behavior, style, and look, the artist enters a conversation about personal vs. collective, original vs. foreign, and authentic vs. standardized.

'Many women take on too many responsibilities because they do not want to be perceived as lazy or unhelpful in their marriages. For many of us, learning to say ``no`` to requests from their husbands or families, is the most difficult thing.' - M. Chikwemba
