The Renaissance Society

Black Is, Black Ain't
April 20 – June 08, 2008

Panel Discussion featuring Thomas Johnson, Elizabeth Axtman, and William Pope.L

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.
