Stamps lecturer Melanie Manos performs in the interactive installation A Piece of the Pie created by artist/curator Laura Earle for the exhibition Unraveling Racism: Seeing White.
The voice of a unique art-making experience with a powerful podcast (Scene on Radio’s Seeing White) 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, interdisciplinary, and collaborative, this lively body of work is the result.
