Colorblind/Colorsight looks at the diverse practices of these seven emerging artists who deal with issues of gender, race and ethnicity. In conjunction with the American University 2009 Fall Colloquium series, Beyond the Binary: Race-ing Art, this exhibition examines what it means to identify as an “ethnic” artist in a “post-racial” America.

Please join us for a panel discussion with Howardina Pindell, Sanford Biggers, Jiha Moon, Galo Moncayo and Isabel Manalo followed by a reception for Colorblind/Colorsight on Tuesday, November 10, 2009.
