The exhibition “Through the Eyes of Others” and its programming aim to provide a critical platform for re-imaging the past, present and future possibilities of blackness as something more complex than race. What words, actions and images can interrogate the culture of violence, distrust and hatred applied to black people? While stereotype images of black people continue to reinforce negative attitudes, work in the exhibition resists and defies easy consumption of these subjects.
Featuring artists Ebony G. Patterson, Dread Scott, Hank Willis Thomas, and Bernard Williams. The exhibition runs from November 6 – December 11, 2015.
