The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

The first comprehensive retrospective of one of America’s most compelling and controversial artists, Art and Race Matters traces the work of Robert Colescott (1925-2009), who established his career in Portland with the support of gallery owner and philanthropist Arlene Schnitzer, then made his mark in the 1970s with a series of deconstructed art-historical masterpieces that challenged taboos around racial stereotyping.

Co-curated by Lowery Stokes Sims and Matthew Weseley, and organized by Raphaela Platow, the CAC’s Alice & Harris Weston Director and Chief Curator.
