Edward West Exhibits at DAAS Gallery in Haven Hall

So Called1

Edward West’s solo show, So Called, is at DAAS Gallery in Haven Hall on U‑M’s central campus from Mar. 13 — May 2, with an opening reception Mar. 13th from 5:30 — 8:00 pm. 

The position and place of people of mixed ethnicities has been contested for centuries. With the election of a mixed race U.S. president and steady increases in mixed race populations across the world, an understanding of the history and current status of mixed race identities is essential to a new global citizenship. So Called, a title that evokes changing definitions of racial identity addresses this shift in a series of photographic portraits of strong multi-ethnic communities in three locations: Cape Town, South Africa; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Havana, Cuba. With support from the Vice Provost for Research, OVPR, DAAS, and the Stamps School of Art & Design.
