See and experience our new all-ages summer exhibition, Self, Made: Exploring You in a World of We (May 23–September 2), on its opening weekend. 

Have you ever wondered what makes you you? Explore the many converging facets of identity on this journey to the center of the self. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Are your cells “you”—and are they still you if they live on long after your death? Do women get interrupted more than men do? Question your assumptions, weigh your psychic baggage, and dare yourself to try on a new persona as you explore both self and society.

This bold yet playful exhibition features dozens of new interactives, artifacts, and artworks, including the costumes worn by Shuri and T'Challa in Marvel’s Black Panther and work by Kehinde Wiley, painter of the official White House portrait of Barack Obama. Come as you are—and let’s take a look in the mirror.

Looking for exclusie access to the exhibtion on Saturday, May 25 from 9:00 a.m. to noon? Become a member and enjoy the all-ages Member Morning and make yourself at home on Pier 15 all year long.
