Acts of Erasure in Exhibit
“RACIAL IMAGINARY” AT PITZER COLLEGE
at Nichols Gallery through December 5, 2014
Pitzer College’s exhibition, “Racial Imaginary,” the visual art component of a larger project that includes a book of essays, musings and poems, demonstrates the fecundity of race and identity for artists of all media and aesthetic proclivities. The featured artists primarily working in video, sculpture and photography, engage with the question of what it means to create race-based art in an era in which racial divisions are simultaneously dismissed as archaic but are more entrenched than ever.
