Inspired by Patricia Hill Collins’ examination of the matrix of domination, Systems of Injustice seeks to examine the structural, disciplinary, hegemonic, and interpersonal realms of domination intersect to create systemic oppression for people of color. By exploring the different ways these domains support and sustain each other, each artist confronts a system that has never been based on the equality of its participants. The most challenging part of acknowledging this system is to first recognize what your role is within it. For people of color, this is often the easiest thing to see, but the hardest thing to articulate. For others, the challenge is recognizing the way in which the system grants you privilege. The artists selected for this exhibition act as both a mirror and a window into this system, by giving unique perspective to those who experience this oppression, while also articulating what this experience can be like for them.
