Digital chromogenic prints and photographs from the conceptual artist’s key series—”Unbranded: A Century of White Women, 1915-2015,” “Unbranded: Reflections in Black by Corporate America 1968-2008,” and “Branded”—go on view in Florida, investigating how racial and gender stereotypes have been perpetuated in advertising and marketing imagery for the past century.
