Layers: an exploration of race and identity

Reception and Exhibition
The Minneapolis Foundation
8th Floor, IDS Center
80 South Eighth Street
Minneapolis

Local artists explore the role of race and identity – both how we define ourselves and how others define us.

The works in this exhibit reflect upon the complex layers of race and racism, including history, ancestry, culture, society, science, and appearance. This art exhibit is held at the same time as the Science Museum’s RACE exhibit, of which the Foundation is a sponsor.

View photographs, paintings, prints, quilts, and installations that reconsider race, celebrate difference, and contemplate the roots of identity.
