180510 Canadian Art Aruna 2272

Online art publication Momus has reviewed Aruna D'Souza's Whitewalling: Art, Race & Protest in 3 Acts.

Momus Senior Editor Casey Beal writes:

"Whitewalling smartly navigates its terrain of artworld race and representation. Shifting between rigorous exposition of the factual histories, and incisive, sometimes incendiary criticism of the principle positions, D’Souza marshals a considered and precise assault on a deserving target, Liberal American complacency in the face of white supremacy. And beyond her contributions on the immediate subject of race, D’Souza also offers a vital, timely rebuke to the unfaithful translation and cooptation of protest by unscrupulous institutions."
