"Bend Me, Shape Me: Self Portraiture and Stereotype"

Saturday, March 06 - 10:00AM to 11:45AM
Salon B

Is stereotype hardwired into our brains? Within a fraction of
a second of viewing someone, we have classified him or her
according to our schema, which has been developed over the
course of our lifetimes. And although most people would describe
themselves as less biased than average, this is a questionable
assumption. Our automatic responses can belie our good
intentions. But are our prejudices inevitable? Is it possible to
override our impulses? Toward this end, the works of Cybèle
Clark-Mendes, Sonsereé Verdise Gibson, and Jane S. Noel challenge
the viewer's comfort level with their own perceptions.
