Whiteness exhibit to open its only East Coast showing

“Whiteness, A Wayward Construction” is opening its only East Coast showing at the U.Va. Art Museum on Oct. 23. It was installed at the Laguna Art Museum in Laguna Beach, Calif., in 2003, and is the first of its kind in an American museum. In the group exhibition, the artists explore their identity politics in a cultural study of whiteness in the public imagination and in contemporary art in the United States. The exhibition continues through Dec. 23 and includes 61 paintings, drawings, photography and installations by 24 artists.
