Official catalogue release party for the new exhibition Re-Devaluing Colorism: The Intersections of Skin Color and Currency that features sculpture, paintings, video, and drawings by 14 women of color, the majority of whom are African-American artists from Texas. Their artwork responds to the global phenomenon of basing a person’s worth on his/her skin color, and its deleterious outcomes that have ranged from self-loathing to the sexualization of women of “indeterminate ethnic origin”. This Dreamweek event will celebrate the unveiling of the exhibition catalogue, which includes exhibition artwork, poetry, scholarly texts, tips for parents, and arts activities for children.
This exhibition is sponsored by the San Antonio Chapter of The Links, Incorporated and runs through April 5 at Southwest School of Art.
Featured artists include Bernice Appelin-Williams, Rabea Ballin, Lauren Cross, Barbara Felix, Pallavi Govindnathan, Jin-Ya Huang, Ann ‘Sole Sister’ Johnson, Lauren Kelley, Dan Lam, Vicki Meek, Deborah Roberts, Susan Sponsler-Carstarphen, Naomi Wanjiku Gakunga, and Montoya Williams.
