Gallery Project presents Race, a multi-media exhibit that explores the commodification of race in the Age of Obama. The exhibit opens at noon on Wednesday, May 27, and runs until Sunday, July 5. The reception is on Friday, May 29 from 6-9.
What constitutes race in the age of Obama? How do we define ourselves or our nation as we watch and interact with the co-modification of Obama and our past notion of Race? Does Race now become a disposable commodity? What does it mean to be or to become the "Brand" for a new American age? If this is the beginning of the end of Race, or just a continuance, then what should it look like, perform like, smell, taste or be like? The premise of this exhibition is its ability to both ask and answer the question of Race and its disposability.
The Race exhibit is curated by painter, Peter Williams, a long-time Detroiter and currently art professor at the University of Delaware.
