OFF WHITE August 4 – November 6, 2016
Curated by Akintola Hanif of HYCIDE
Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts | 80 Hanson Pl., Brooklyn, NY 11217
Through photojournalism, documentary film, graphic design and sculpture, OFF WHITE bears witness to the exclusionary systems of power that simultaneously privilege and ostracize individuals on the condition of race. Together, works by Khalik Allah, Akintola Hanif, Nema Etebar, Shawn Theodore, Fletcher Williams III, Jamel Shabazz, Asif Farooq, and Adrian Franks provide a counter-narrative to the prevailing custom of implicating the suffering in their own violent oppressions.
