The exhibition and program series Do/Tell draws upon ICA’s 1994 exhibition Carrie Mae Weems to explore how acts of storytelling construct ideas of home, family, and identity. Taken as a whole, works by artists Erin Bernard, Heather Hart, Rachelle Mozman, and Akosua Adoma Owusu lace and loosen ties between personal stories and historical scripts that shape identity.

<em>Do/Tell</em> is in a paper foldout format.
