    $4,900.00

  • Fiscal Year:

    The exhibition shows how acts of erasure can subvert notions of authority and rewrite history, examining relationships between the erasure of text through cross-out, redaction, and white-out and the erasure of bodies through policy, norms, and violence.

With many points of entry via the humanities, the show is profoundly relevant to today’s socio-political issues and is on view from September 2019 to January 2020.
