2012-13 A/P/A Artist-in-Residence Welcome
Featuring Roger Shimomura with Michael Ray Charles
Wednesday, September 19, 2012
NYU Casa Italiana
24 West 12th Street
Join us in welcoming 2012-13 Artist-in-Residence Roger Shimomura to the Asian/ Pacific/American Institute at NYU. Acclaimed for his poignant, bright-colored prints and paintings, award-winning artist Shimomura challenges constructions of the racialized “other” and calls attention to the power of material and pop culture to normalize whiteness. He is joined by renowned painter Michael Ray Charles, whose work incorporates and interrogates racist mass media images of African Americans. The artists will address the power of art to expose stereotypes and create new visual vocabularies.
Artist Jana Haimsohn will provide a performative introduction and NYU Professor Arlene Davila will moderate the conversation.
