Vielmetter Los Angeles congratulates Samuel Levi Jones, Pope.L, and Deborah Roberts on their inclusion in the When You See Me: Visibility in Contemporary Art/History at the Dallas Museum of Art in Texas. The exhibition is on view until April 13, 2025.

When You See Me explores the complexities of visibility in the permanent collection of the Dallas Museum of Art. The exhibition aims to broaden and complicate official histories and their corresponding visual strategies to allow for richer representations of those who have been traditionally excluded or erased. When You See Me features nearly 60 works by a diverse, intergenerational group of 50 artists who contend with visibility both socially and formally. Their works explore invisibility, hypervisibility, the desire to be seen, and the right to be private. The exhibition title is drawn from Roberts’s work of the same name.

The multivocal nature of this show is reflected in its co-curation by the Museum’s entire Contemporary Art Department, which comprises Dr. Anna Katherine Brodbeck, Dr. Vivian Li, Ade Omotosho, and Veronica Myers.
