Ten Days until lift off!!! Off to Miami for Art Basel
Less than 4% of black woman are represented in museums and galleries in the Unites States. These number are NOT a true representation of the black women artist working, here in America. TILA Studio's has created an amazing opportunity to show 10 black woman artist at Art Basel this year. They are changing those numbers directly. There are also changing the conversation from "Where are all the black women artist?" to "We are Here ! "
FROM TILA Studio's homepage
The Stats --> 4% Black women make up only 4% of art professionals across the museums and galleries spaces in the United States. Because our work is underrepresented and undervalued in public and private institutions, we are not afforded the same opportunities as our peers. Therefore, our wages are impacted, our productivity is halted and our confidence challenged.
Why Art Basel: We Are Having a National Conversation
We're traveling to Art Basel to have a SEAT AT THE TABLE. It is our mission to champion the underdog and have tough conversations that have the capacity to shift an entire industry to be more inclusive, more equitable and more accessible.
Where Your Dollars Are Going:
This experience is an ambitious one and we're ready. Your dollars will go to fund up to 10 Black Women artists housing expenses, airfare to and from Atlanta, Food, Materials needed to transport work to Miami, Access to Art Fairs in Miami.
