Once we recognize the stereotype for what it is—a way of training a viewer’s gaze through repeated encounters—we begin to see the violence of our own projections onto forms of representation. Looks Like That investigates different valences of looking that feed stereotypes: both how things appear (a look), and the action of looking (to look). Comprised of photographs, painting, and sculpture, these works from the Marieluise Hessel Collection infiltrate the stories that we project onto images as voyeurs, passersby, or participants—stories that often develop by looking without really seeing.

With artists Ida Applebroog, Tracey Baran, Lucas Blalock, Mark Bradford, Miguel Calderón, Eric Fischl, Nikki S. Lee, Rebecca Morgan, Pope.L, Daniela Rossell, Tunga, and Fred Wilson
