Shifting Gaze: A Reconstruction of the Black & Hispanic Body in Contemporary Art
The Mennello Museum of American Art is pleased to present Shifting Gaze: A Reconstruction of The Black & Hispanic Body in Contemporary Art.
Shifting Gaze: A Reconstruction of The Black & Hispanic Body in Contemporary Art presents a selection of works from Dr. Robert B. Feldman's extensive collection of contemporary art. The artists gathered in the exhibition have all drawn upon art history, American history, and popular culture to create powerful works that, independently and collectively, present a broad range of concepts about identity, beauty, belonging, and religion, as well as work with deep gravitas around poignant issues of race, sexuality, violence, displacement, vulne ability, erasure, and visibility.
