Our very first Christmas at Hull House, when we as yet knew nothing of child labor, a number of little girls which was offered them as part of the Christmas good cheer saying simply that they
“worked in a candy factory and could not bear the sight of it.” We discovered that for six weeks they had worked from seven in the morning until nine at night and they were exhausted as well as satiated. . .
-Jane Addams, Twenty Years at Hull-House
Through a series of contemporary art interventions placed throughout the house over the next year, this exhibition challenges and interrupts the ways that whiteness remains invisible, unexamined, potent and powerful as a dominant aesthetic and political force in society and culture.
