Art Exhibition

The Art Exhibition of the 11th Annual Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies explores the constructs of beauty, identity, and desire. This year’s participating artists examine these themes as they fluctuate from passive consumer to active producer and delve into the ideas of sexualization, objectification, agency, and autonomy.  To get at the intersection and interplay of identity and aesthetics, the artists investigate these questions not only with their subject matter but also with their variety of media.  Taken together, this year’s selectively curated works provoke discussion of the intricate role of race and ethnic identity in the performance of beauty and desire in the modern world.

Student Co-curators: Hibaq Adan ’15, Ian Blair ’15, Maya Flint ’15, and Lesedi Khabele-Stevens ’17
