Whitewalling: Aruna D'Souza with Paul Chan at McNally Jackson Soho

Thursday, May 24 at 7 PM, McNally Jackson Soho presents a reading and booksigning of Whitewalling: Art, Race & Protest in 3 Acts by Aruna D'Souza. Whitewalling is a gripping account of three incidents in the long and troubled history of art and race in America. It lays bare how the art world—no less than the country at large—has persistently struggled with the politics of race, and the ways this struggle has influenced how museums, curators and artists wrestle with notions of free speech and the specter of censorship. With illustrations by artists Parker Bright and Pastiche Lumumba. D'Souza will do a reading from the book followed by a short conversation with Paul Chan, publisher of Badlands Unlimited.

"The book is remarkable for its clarity, lightness of touch, fearlessness, and righteous research."
—Laura Raicovich, writer and former Executive Director of Queens Museum

"An impressively nuanced exploration of the relationship between art and race in America."
