Breaking Boundaries


Artists of Color Collective is a community-based organization that uplifts and supports people of color who are practicing, artists, art historians, and creatives. Through a multitude of projects including publications, gallery exhibitions, and artist talks, they are able to build skills and experience in young artists of color to help them further their interests and joys. 

In late 2020, we decided to create a publication that would take place for an in-person gallery show that could not exist because of COVID-19. Breaking Boundaries was born and features 11 artists who exhibited one piece of their choice that they felt exemplified an act of boundary breaking. For the art direction of this project, I wanted to let the work speak for itself. Keeping a minimal color palette and utilizing gradients to show depth, push the artists’ work into the foreground. Breaking Boundaries is all about the details, features of Instagram handles on the corners and delicate displays of birthplace and date streamed throughout the publication.
