Presented by Art Galleries at Black Studies
Presented by the Art Galleries at Black Studies, In Passing brings together several bodies of work made by the Los Angeles-based artist, Genevieve Gaignard. The exhibition explores Gaignard’s ever-evolving performance of identity through large-format self-portraits and domestic installations. Through these art forms, the artist interrogates her own intersectional identity as a biracial woman, and the murky terrain of race, class, and gender in contemporary culture. On one level, In Passing allows viewers to see the artist looking at herself as she navigates what it means to “pass,” and on another, it challenges us to investigate ourselves, both in the way that we conform to certain societal standards as well as the judgments we make about others in passing.
Opens: Jan. 31, 2019
Closes: May 4, 2019

The Art Galleries at Black Studies are open to all ages and stages of education, whether undergraduate, graduate, or adult learners. The exhibition would also be appropriate for Signature Courses, as gallery tours of Christian-Green are largely interactive and push students to transition from high school to college-level learning.
