All eyes are on the series to see if it can maintain the level of drama, glam and delightful camp that turned it into a ratings powerhouse and Twitter champ. The series hits every pleasure point for successful trashy TV: ludicrous plots, gleaming fashions, breakout performances, and a true gasp of it's own ambitions to reinvent the glitzy nighttime soap for a new generation. Empire knows what it is, and is keeping it real.
Empire begins its new season on this Wednesday night, September 23rd on FOX. In the meantime, check out the trailer for season two below.
Artist Lester Merriweather's WHITE(S) ONLY takes the opportunity to reexamine certain aspects of the history of “whiteness” in the United States from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present. Comprised of 25 works, the exhibition elaborates the themes, beliefs, and passions that have concocted America’s ideologies in it’s struggle to deal within and against established institutions, often directly engaging their social contexts. Several pieces that have never been shown before appear as renditions of beloved (to some) icons in a conscious effort to unsettle assumptions about America’s racial climate. WHITE(S) ONLY constitutes a kind of collective memory—one that represents a range of conflicting attitudes toward what America might represent to some as well as what that representation means to/for others. By simultaneously mining and questioning our past, we do not arrive at a comprehensive conclusion, but at a moment ripe with new questions for all to consider. WHITE(S) ONLY will be on view at The Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art at the University of Memphis Room 200 Arts & Communication Bldg in conjunction with The Attendant by Hamlett Dobbins through September 25, 2015.
