It will be on view in the University of Virginia Art Museum through Dec. 23, the only East Coast showing of this exhibit that is the first of its kind.
Stallings also organized “Cyborg Manifesto, or the Joy of Artifice” (2001), and “Sandow Birk’s ‘In Smog and Thunder: Historical Works from the Great War of California’” (2000) for the Laguna Art Museum. 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.
