He has planned “Rubén Ortiz Torres: Desmothernismo” (1998, traveled); and “Kara Walker: African’t” (1997). He is the co-editor of the anthology “Uncontrollable Bodies: Testimonies of Identity and Culture” (Seattle: Bay Press, 1994) and also contributed to the catalog that accompanies the “Whiteness” exhibit.

The U.Va. Art Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
