In this program, we welcome back the #notwhite collective as they express the hybridized and multifaceted aspects of self-defined liberation. They will be celebrating their recently released book A Future Artefact of the Global Majority: a book that catalogs the #notwhite collective’s journey, vision, members, and work spanning their first six years— 2016–2022. It is a true labor of love that will be commemorated in this evening of poetry, spoken word, and music, followed by a Q&A with artists.
About the Artists:
The #notwhite collective is a group of 13 women artists whose mission is to use non-individualistic, multi-disciplinary art to make their stories visible as they relate, connect, and belong to the Global Majority. They utilize their arts practice singularly and collectively to Excavate Histories, Expose Realities, and Exorcise Oppression. They are bi/multi-racial/cultural, immigrant or descendants of immigrants investigating the many ways they are seen or not seen, how they self-identify and how they seek liberation through sharing space and stories, research and art-making, discussing the history of imperialism and its effect on them and on the whole not-white world. They actively reject colonialism through their non-hierarchical process. The collective accepts cultural fluidity as a means of seeing and being seen, each member declaring their existence, individually and collectively, through their voices, bodies, and art.
