Curated by Akintola Hanif
August 4 – November 6, 2016
Opening Reception on Thursday, August 4 | 7-10PM | Free Admission
Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts
Through photography, film, design, and sculpture, OFF WHITE bears witness to the exclusionary systems of power that simultaneously privilege and ostracize individuals on the condition of race. Together, works by Akintola Hanif, Khalik Allah, Nema Etebar, Shawn Theodore, Fletcher Williams III, Jamel Shabazz, Asif Farooq, and Adrian Franks provide a counter-narrative to implicating the suffering in their own violent oppressions, while challenging the viewer to re-examine inherited and personal notions of responsibility.
Come celebrate the opening of OFF WHITE with the exhibiting artists.
Music by P.U.D.G.E.MENTAL
