Behind the Veil

EXHIBITION: October 13–November 12, 2023
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, October 14, 4-6pm


This group exhibition was curated in response to an open call for curatorial proposals and was juried by Klaudia Ofwona Draber, founding Director of KODA, a social practice residency. WAAM will host a public reception to celebrate the opening of a new round of exhibitions on Saturday, October 14 from 4-6pm.

Behind the Veil is an examination of the ways in which bias and oppression impact artists and their work. The exhibition’s title pays homage to the words of W. E. B. Du Bois: Beneath the Veil lay right and wrong, vengeance and love, and sometimes throwing aside the veil, a soul of sweet Beauty and Truth stood revealed.” Curators Onaje Benjamin and Dan Goldman selected works by a diverse range of artists in an array of media including painting, photography, sculpture and assemblage.
