Only 16% of the world’s population are white. Only 50.4% of the worlds population is male. Yet statistically there is more artwork shown and celebrated in the art world that is created by white males than any other background. Why do we refuse to showcase the creativity of women, and people of colour?
‘Only’ 49.6% of the world’s population is female. ‘Only’ 84% of the world’s population are people of colour. Where is their representation within the art community?
We are stuck behind a boundary that society has erected, but our creativity deserves to be celebrated without being condemned to being ‘too angry, too political, too girly, too black’. We will not be stuck behind this boundary anymore, the break’s over, let’s take over.
