Exploring Racism at CPR, “By Any Means Necessary”

May 30th, 2014  |  Published in Uncategorized

“By Any Means Necessary” at the Cleveland Print Room runs from June 13 through July 26.

In its first exhibition of the summer, the Cleveland Print Room hosts By Any Means Necessary: Observations, Experiences, Perpetuations of Racism. The show will feature the work of four photographers: Donald Black Jr., Gabriel Gonzalez, Teresa Martinez and Chris Mason.

Racism — \’rā-,si-zəm\ — is defined as a “belief or doctrine that inherent differences exist among the various human races’ cultural or individual achievements.”

What does racism mean to you? The Cleveland Print Room is exploring a multitude of meanings on this uncomfortable topic with this show, the opening weekend of which will also feature an artist panel to discuss racism and all its dimensions.

“We hope the show will reflect how the dynamic nature of racial discourse leads to new ways of defining racism, as artists seek ways of presenting their everyday struggles involving racism as an evolving concept,” said Shari Wilkins, Cleveland Print Room’s founder and director.

By Any Means Necessary opens with a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, June 13. A gallery talk featuring the Artist Panel is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 14.
