In-Dialogue series Presented by the #notwhite Collective

November 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST

The #notwhite collective in-dialogue series features conversations with BIPOC, AALANA, indigenous, and immigrant artists and arts administrators. The series reimagines the past and present history of the arts sector by engaging and presenting the wealth of experience, strategies, and tactics of the global majority, notwhite descendants, inheritors of colonialism, indigenous, and immigrants who navigate a predominantly white arts sector.

Celebrating and recognizing arts and cultural workers, especially those who tend to be under the radar and forgotten about, the #notwhite collective has featured speakers from southwestern PA as well as national leaders in the arts.

November’s conversation feature ROSIE GORDON-WALLACE (6:00 PM) and DOMINIQUE ENRIQUEZ (7:00 PM)

The #notwhite collective is a group of thirteen women artists whose mission is to use non-individualist, multi-disciplinary art to make our stories visible as we relate, connect, and belong to the global majority.

Rosie Gordon-Wallace is an advocate for racial, inclusion, equity, and access. Her leadership approach invites community participation from particularly those in marginalized communities. Her curatorial projects include international exhibitions in the English, French, Dutch, and Spanish speaking Caribbean with the most recent installation of Inter|Sectionality: Diaspora Art from the Creole City mounted at the Corcoran Museum in Washington DC and then at the Harvey B. Gantt African American Center for Art + Culture in Charlotte, North Carolina. Additionally, she served as guest curator for National YoungArts and with Joan Mitchell Artist in Residence Center in New Orleans.

Gordon-Wallace is the Founder President | Curator for Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator a Miami-based nomadic museum and incubator that brings segregated communities, people, and experiences together through art. Under her leadership, DVCAI intentionally develops artistic platforms that promote, nurture, and encourage the maturation of emerging Caribbean artists, African American, Afro Latino, and Latinx artists. DVCAI encourages connections beyond traditional engagements with art and culture.
