#notwhite collectiveis a group of 13 women artists elevating the stories of the others. Those who do not fit neatly in the consensus boxes; neatly in cultural categories.
#notwhite collective Is a bi/multi-racial/cultural, immigrant or descendants of immigrants. Since 2016, they have met to share, to question, to investigate, dig deep into what identity is within and outside the construct and context of white –not in skin color, but as a system of oppression, a system we do not align ourselves with. They provide an artistic platform for difficult discussions on the complexities of cultural identity in America to move us all towards humanity.
#notwhite collective members are: Sarah Aziz, Veronica Corpuz, Christiane Dolores, Amber Epps, Fran Flaherty, Geña, Sarika Goulatia, Carolina Loyola-Garcia, Liana Maneese, Maritza Mosquera, Maggie Negrete, Sara Tang and Alison Zapata.
