Seung-Min Lee’s performance Intolerable Whiteness takes on the conflicted symbolic power of milk: As the once–booming dairy industry in New York state suffers with the steady decline of milk consumption, a new generation of Neo-Nazis takes pride in lactose tolerance, instrumentalizing the optical purity of milk as a emblem of white supremacy.

This performance is presented as part of The Racial Imaginary Institute: On Whiteness. For more information about the exhibition and other programs please see our website

July 23, 7pm 

Pre-registration for the event has sold out. An in-person waitlist will start at 6pm.

The Racial Imaginary Institute: On Whiteness is made possible with support from the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, Poetry Foundation, Valerie Dillon & Daniel R Lewis, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Leslie Fritz, and OSMOS; annual grants from Howard Gilman Foundation, Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation, and Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Special thanks to the Korein Foundation.
