Women of color (WOC) that are curators, jurors, and artists often work in communities with mostly other people of color. Even if a WOC artist is in a space that does or does not have other people of color in it, there is another separation: the ability to discuss both gender and race in their work. There are shows that discuss both aspects of this identity, but it is often not outside of the neighborhoods in which these artists are based. Through this paper I want to know: do female artist of color working in Chicago have similar experiences? How does identifying as a woman and a person of color artist overlap in the creative process?
This zine is about my interviews with each woman. Find out more on:
