Coco Fusco

Visual Arts' Coco Fusco Examines Images of Race and Identity in Photography

From the beginning of photography there have been artists and photographers who were preoccupied with the issue of race, says Coco Fusco, associate professor of visual arts and co-curator of the International Center of Photography's "Only Skin Deep: Changing Visions of the American Self." I wanted a show about race to be about how photography tells us what race is and which race we belong to, she says.

"Only Skin Deep" is on display at the International Center of Photography, 1133 Avenue of the Americas , through Feb. 29. On Saturday, Feb. 7, a day-long symposium, "Visualizing Race in American Photography," will be held in Jerome Greene Hall, room 101. The symposium, which begins at 10:00 a.m. , will consider topics such as archives, the transdisciplinary relevance of racial imagery, and race and digital imaging.
