Race in Digital Space, presented by the List Visual Arts Center in conjunction with a conference on race and technology hosted at MIT, will feature the work of over 30 artists using film, video, new media, and web techniques.

With an emphasis on cultural hybridity, the artists explore how electronic culture influences the production of identity, race, and nationhood as our conception of the historical document evolves. Organized by Erika Dalya Muhammad and presenting works created from the early 1970s to the present, the exhibition will offer works that inhabit electronic space and engage these topics in creative and progressive ways.
