Through this exhibit we seek to understand the various ways that artists explore the broad topic of race. Examples of mapping race can be pieces that analyze geographic spaces in relation to racial identities such as catastrophic events like the earthquake in Haiti or Pakistan, works inspired by the coming together of races which culminated in the election of Barack Obama, works that take on the recent racialization of religion, debates around immigration or that approach race from a more holistic perspective by exploring the human race. The artists in this exhibit look at race through a variety of different lenses, painting in different shades and carving through different layers.
