SEGREGATED INFLUENCES | CPAC | DENVER COLORADO

COMPLEXION, explores the historical concept of colorism in the African-American/Black Diaspora. The definition of COLORISMDiscrimination based on skin color. Colorism is a form of prejudice or discrimination in which people are treated differently based on the social meanings attached to skin color."  Contemporary to the “paper bag test,” COMPLEXION focuses on the intersections of Black culture, systemic racism, and the ideal visual representation of Black Bodies presented by the media. 

 The first iteration of Colorism recently exhibited at The Dairy Art Center, Boulder CO, derives specifically from the 1950s, a time where it was perceived the American Dream was finally introduced to people of color BUT people of color were absolutely misrepresented by the imagery the magazine produced. Unlike today’s Jet Magazine filled with Celebrities of darker skin tones, fairer skinned women of color infused with European inspired hairstyles were deemed most attractive, desirable and complex socially.

ONE IN EIGHT

It is estimated that one in eight women born today will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in life. Through census research in 2013, approximately 160,593,450 women live in the United States; twenty million or one in eight of those women are destined for breast cancer. Breast cancer does not discriminate nor is it limited to one country. It is a global disease that affects both men and women; although the percentage of men who die from breast cancer is much smaller. A rare occurrence, less than one percent of all breast cancer cases develop in men and only one in a thousand men will ever be diagnosed with breast cancer. And so this exhibition focuses on the one in eight women who will be affected by this terrible disease.
