24 VIEWS

 a project by Tiffany Lin
is a multivalent project that uses US Census data to interrogate the past, present, and future impact of racial categorization. 24 VIEWS is so named for the twenty-four censuses conducted thus far.

The project began with a longitudinal drawing series that transformed into a community based workshop, and has expanded into a web-based curatorial project. Thank you for coming to reimagine America with us.

This project is supported by the UNLV Department of Art, National Endowment for the Humanities, and Nevada Humanities

24 VIEWS

The Original Drawing Series
24 VIEWS began as a longitudinal drawing series that investigates the history of racial classification through US Census data. The drawings visualize demographic information on race, ethnicity, immigration, and citizenship from 1790 to 2020, and will continue so long as Lin is willing and able. The project seeks to problematize race-based language by examining the evolution of federal race and ethnicity standards as an archive of structural racism. The drawings were exhibited at Left of Center Gallery in North Las Vegas as part of Lin’s solo exhibition A SYSTEMS THEORY



THE  WORKSHOP

Educational Resources
24 VIEWS collaborated with local Clark County educators to facilitate workshops grounded in community dialogue around race in America. The workshop has been adapted into an age-appropriate curriculum for students grades 9-12. If you are an educator looking for a lesson plan connected to civic participation, the Census, and race in America, come back soon to download the full lesson plan and related materials.
