Hardcover, 7.5×10 inches, 152 pp, 28 b&w and 28 color reproductions

What does it mean to be \”white\” in America and how have artists over the past decade explored and addressed this issue in their art? Whiteness, A Wayward Construction, is a thought provoking publication exploring the image WHITENESS of \”whiteness\” in the public imagination as seen through contemporary art, instead of through historical development. Author/curator Tyler Stallings’ brilliant selection of contemporary works from the political 1990’s movements establishes a deeper understanding regarding the overwhelming power that being \”white\” actually has over other races. Works by 26 artists are then grouped into three sections: \”White Out\”, \”Mirror, Mirror…\”, and the \”Graying of Whiteness\”. A brilliant exhibition preserved in an elegantly designed publication.
