Represent: Power in Color

The ArtCenter Library will be bringing a pop-up library to the Antiracist Classroom’s one-day pop-up show, Represent: Power in Color, on Saturday, December 1st from 3:00 - 7:00pm at the Armory Center for the Arts. The exhibition and dialogue celebrates ArtCenter’s students and alumni of color and their explorations of self, identity, and visibility through creative work. In art and design, people of color are too often underrepresented, misrepresented, or rendered invisible in spite of their deep contributions to art, design, craft, and cultural production. Other times, the creative contributions made by people of color are tokenized in such a way that overshadows the work itself. This exhibit aims to give space to expressions of representation that are self-determined and celebratory, critical and exploratory. This exhibit features creatives whose work examines what it looks like to genuinely, respectfully, and fully represent who they are and how they experience the joys and burdens of representing themselves or their membership in a community or collective identity. Presented by the Antiracist Classroom and CHROMA.
