WHO WE BE: ART, IMAGES, AND RACE IN POST-CIVIL RIGHTS AMERICA
AFRICAAM 188 | ARTHIST 154B | CSRE 88
Featuring Carrie Mae Weems, Amalia Mesa-Bains, Roberta Uno, and Liz Medicine Crow
Over the past half-century, the U.S. has seen profound demographic and cultural change. But we remain a nation divided. The culture wars flare as hot as ever.
This course examines visual culture-- images, works, and ideas in the contemporary arts, justice movements, and popular culture from the Watts uprising to #BlackLivesMatter, from multiculturalism through hip-hop to "post-identity" art. How do Americans see race now? Do we see each other any more clearly than before?
Presented in conjunction with a special exhibition at the Cantor Center for the Arts, "Who We Be", March 30-June27, Lynn Krywick Gibbons Gallery.
