To support Art and Race Matters: The Career of Robert Colescott, the first comprehensive retrospective of multifaceted American artist Robert Colescott, who through his work attempted to deconstruct art and history; grapple with current events, cinema, and the media; and question standards of beauty and identity. The exhibition is organized by the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati and is also presented at the Portland Art Museum. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
