Taking its title from Ralph Ellison?s Invisible Man, this exhibition will explore a shift in the rhetoric of race from an earlier emphasis on inclusion to a present moment where racial identity is being simultaneously rejected and retained. The exhibition will bring together works by 26 black and non-black artists whose work together examines a moment where the cultural production of so-called "blackness?" is concurrent with efforts to make race socially and politically irrelevant.
