Join us at 7:30 pm EST for a conversation with C. Riley Snorton and Hentyle Yapp, editors of Saturation: Race, Art, and the Circulation of Value (MIT Press/New Museum, 2020), and Candice Lin, artist and book contributor.
Controversies involving race and the art world are often discussed in terms of diversity and representation—as if having the right representative from a group or a larger plurality of embodied difference would absolve art institutions from historic forms of exclusion. Saturation offers another approach, taking into account not only questions of racial representation but also issues of structural change and the redistribution of resources. In essays, conversations, discussions, and artist portfolios, contributors confront in new ways questions at the intersection of art, race, and representation.
Snorton and Yapp will discuss Saturation: Race, Art, and the Circulation of Value with Lin, whose solo exhibition will open at the at the Carpenter Center in the spring of 2022.
