If you were walking down the street what race do you think other Americans who do not know you would automatically assume you were based on what you look like?
That is the question being addressed in an upcoming outdoor art installation sponsored by the Center for Regional Studies. The one-evening event is happening Thursday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m. It will take place in the historic Barelas neighborhood, in the empty lot adjacent to a barber shop at 1011 4th Street SW.
The show will feature video projections of art by local artists. They will be reflecting on “street race” and the social construction of race in their lives and work.
The exhibition is supported through funding from the UNM Center for Regional Studies. For more information email the Institute for the Study of "Race" & Social Justice or visit its website.
