January 18th – April 15th, 2018

THINLY VEILED features 58 works by 54 artists including Walter Angehrn, Trent Davis Bailey, Carolle Bénitah, Rachel Boillot, Wynn Bullock, Ed Burtynsky, Teju Cole, Petah Coyne, Eliot Dudik, Mitch Epstein, Jim Goldberg, Heather Gordon, Kathy Grove, Todd Hido, Michael Kenna, André Kertész, Lisa McCarty, Rebecca Norris Webb, Deborah Oropallo, Luis Gonzales Palma, Rachel Papo, Pam Pecchio, Rachel Perry, Tamara Reynolds, Alison Rossiter, Paul Sepuya, Jerry Siegel, Brandon Thibodeaux, Burk Uzzle, and James Welling.

The exhibition explores literal and metaphorical "veils" that call the viewer to look through them to the subject beyond. Woven into these potent images, viewers may discover thinly veiled grief, racism, defiance, family trauma, shared history, censorship, environmental toxicity and so on. Curated by Frank Konhaus, the exhibit is a self-reflective investigation into the forces and themes that have shaped the Cassilhaus collection and the visual hooks that grab him at some visceral level and won’t let go.
