Seeing White: Unraveling Systemic Racism
About the journey
The Art Kettle is hosting a unique art-making experience with a powerful podcast as its map. John Biewen's Seeing White is a Peabody-nominated podcast that explores the hidden strands of systemic racism woven into the very fabric of American society. Artists will gather weekly to listen to an episode, engage in group discussion, and respond by creating their own artwork. At the end of the series, the body of work will be showcased at the Art Kettle in the Seeing White: Unraveling Systemic Racism exhibit. Our hope is to build understanding, inspire empathy and improve race relations among a variety of communities.
Join this collaborative artistic inquiry into unraveling systemic racism in America. Interdisciplinary groups of artists are forming now.
