Decolonizing Appearance is the first exhibition in CAMP’s new 2-year exhibition program State of Integration: Artistic analyses of the challenges of coexistence. The group exhibition is guest curated by Nicholas Mirzoeff, Professor of Media, Culture and Communication, NYC. The exhibition asks what decolonizing looks like? How do the colonized and the colonizer appear to each other? How can the colonized have the right to look, the right to be seen – in short, the right to appear? What would happen when appearance is decolonized? Decolonizing Appearance brings together collectives and individuals working on these questions in different ways in photography, video, installation, and text.
