  • This exhibit--which features over half a dozen large-scale conceptual objects and sculptural installations by Adam Davis, a Professor of Art at Georgia College & State University at Milledgeville--gives us a glimpse into the effect that interpreting race, and its related issues, has on artists through photography, painting, sculpture, digital images and media. The artworks, which run the gamut from reflective, confrontational, and funny to solemn, speak not only to these artists' varied skills, but also to the historicity of the subject matter and the many ways that historicity can manifest. Race (Enter Personal Politics) examines self and society, as well as commercialism and communication. From ruminations on hip hop and childhood games to a look at Confederate soldiers and standards of beauty, the exhibition presents fresh takes on a dialog as old as America, and nearly as old as time. One in which who we are and what we may become can be defined by how we appear, as well as by what others think they see in us.
