      Unraveling Racism: Seeing White Exhibit Opening

      Turning the lens around, looking straight at white America – and at the notion of whiteness itself... You can have racism without individual racists, because systems and structures have been set up in a way that they just run this way on their own...”

      – John Biewen, Scene on Radio, Seeing White, episode 1

      Unraveling Racism: Seeing White
      Open at 22 North Gallery for just two weekends:
      22 North Huron Street, Ypsilanti

      Friday, October 4 – Sunday, October 6

      (See complete schedule below.)

      The voice of a unique art-making experience with a powerful podcast as its map, 20 Michigan artists tug at the hidden strands of systemic racism woven into the fabric of American society – focusing on whiteness.

      "Where did this idea of a white race come from? For what purpose? How has the meaning of white changed? How does it function now?"

      Cultivating thoughtful and informed perspectives, small groups gathered regularly across urban, rural and suburban settings to respond to the podcast, share personal experiences and create an artistic dialog around these vital issues. Inclusive, inter-disciplinary + collaborative, this lively body of work is the result.
