Seeing Color Podcast

On his Seeing Color podcast, Zhiwan Cheung (Alum ’19 Berlin) talks with cultural workers and artists of color “to expand what is a predominantly white space in the arts.”

Cheung explains, “Seeing Color came from a desire to broaden the scope of art discussions, from a perspective that art cannot always be distinct from the race of its author, from a wanting for a critical analysis aware of and critical towards the white canon, for a wish that my younger self could have heard and learned from these conversations, and for a hope that such an exploration may lead to a path forward through a sea of whiteness.”
