"What does it mean to be ""white"" in America and how have artists over the past decade explored and addressed this issue in their art? Whiteness, A Wayward Construction, is a thought provoking publication exploring the image of ""whiteness"" in the public imagination as seen through contemporary art, instead of through historical development. Author/curator Tyler Stallings' brilliant selection of contemporary works from the political 1990's movements establishes a deeper understanding regarding the over-whelming power that being ""white"" actually has over other races. Works by 26 artists are then grouped into three sections: ""White Out"", ""Mirror, Mirror..."", and the ""Graying of Whiteness"". Essays by David R. Roediger, Amelia Jones, and Ken Gonzales-Day. A brilliant exhibition preserved in an elegantly designed publication."David R. Roediger is the author of 'Whiteness: A Wayward Construction' with ISBN 9780911291315 and ISBN 0911291318.
