Gorgeous Idea: Skins and Surfaces – Unpacking the Color Line with Sampada Aranke
San Francisco, CA 94102
Can a spoon be racialized? How do surfaces become colored and thus transform into skins? In this session, we'll discuss the politics of color in Gorgeous as these pieces either invite or foreclose engagement with histories of dispossession and possibilities for liberation.
Gorgeous Idea events are informal, impromptu in-gallery conversations facilitated by scholars, artists, filmmakers and writers who explore ideas arising from the artwork on view in the exhibition Gorgeous. Each facilitator will present an idea that peaks his or her curiosity and host a session to investigate it through two or three artworks.
