      Professor Ken Gonzales-Day will discuss absence, othering and naming, three concepts that have informed his artistic practice for the past 20 years and reflect an interdisciplinary approach to art making that has sought to understand the historical construction of race and the limits of representational systems though the study of material objects, ranging from the lynching postcard to the plaster cast. In additional to historical research, many of the projects question the (indexical) authority once associated with both photography and plaster life-casts in the 19th and 20th centuries. The work is a reflection on the history of racial formation in the United States and uses absence to foreground what is missing, while making palpable the affective force of these histories on the construction of human difference.
