Edited by Maya Gomez and Vreni Michelini Castillo

Color Theory brings together womxn and gender non-conforming working artists of color from four generations to explore the intersections of race, gender, class and labor in and around art institutions. Edited by Maya Gomez and Vreni Michelini Castillo, these reflections, stories, and remedies (through essay, image, and poetry) engage a multidisciplinary and intergenerational dialogue around ethical aesthetics, systemic oppression, and the ritual landscape. More than a simple indictment (though indict it, unabashedly, does), Color Theory is a must-read collection of communal solidarity, critical resistance and creative healing. “We are not afraid of color,” the editors declare, “because we are the embodiment of color.”

Contributors include Celia Herrera Rodríguez, Nasim Aghili, Onyinye Alheri, Grace Rosario Perkins, Leila Weefur, Melinda Luisa de Jesús, Shylah Pacheco Hamilton, Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo, Jen Everett, Keara Gray, Shah Noor Hussein, Las Nietas de Nonó, Vreni Michelini Castillo, Maya Gomez.
