Exhibit: The Body As Site Of

Thursday, September 14, 2017 9:00 am to Thursday, May 31, 2018 5:00 pm

CSREA, 96 Waterman Street, Providence RI 02912

In this exhibition, four contemporary artists of color engage in reflection on the complexity of identity, sometimes pushing back on misrepresentations, including stereotypes and cultural appropriation, other times presenting alternatives: Akujixxv, Devyn Galindo, Panteha Abareshi, and Carolina Hicks.

Commencement Forum: Tricia Rose '93 PhD, "How Structural Racism Works"

IBES 130 (Carmichael Auditorium), 85 Waterman Street, Providence, RI 02912

This presentation shares ideas from Tricia Rose's on-going research project, which aims to make accessible to the public what structural racism is and how it works in society. The project examines the connections between policies and practices in housing, education and other key spheres of society to reveal the intersectional and compounding effects of systemic discrimination as a significant force in American society today.
