    Taking its title from Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man, this exhibition explored a shift in the rhetoric of race from an earlier emphasis on inclusion to a moment where racial identity was being simultaneously rejected and retained. The exhibition brought together works by 26 black and non-black artists whose work together examined a moment where the cultural production of so-called “blackness” was concurrent with efforts to make race socially and politically irrelevant.

     The poster features Carl Pope’s 2005 work The “A” not the “ER” (2005) on the front and Jonathan Calm’s Isaacs Runoff #1 (2008) on the back, as well as the essay “Domino Effect” by curator Hamza Walker.
