The Mennello Museum of American Art (Website) will soon host a new exhibition featuring the work of 25 international artists called Shifting Gaze: A Reconstruction of The Black & Hispanic Body in Contemporary Art from the collection of Dr. Robert B. Feldman. This exhibition will be on view at the Mennello Museum­ from October 19, 2018, through January 13, 2019.

The artists gathered in this exhibition have all drawn upon art history, American history, and popular culture to create powerful works that, independently and collectively, present a broad range of concepts about identity, beauty, belonging, and poignant issues of race and the ‘other.’

All of the images will reference the body or its absence, via painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture.
