“All Shades Considered” is a group exhibition featuring Texas-based artists who identify as queer people of color (QPOC). Curated by Austin-based artist Ben Aqua, the exhibit showcases the creations of 17 artists working in photography, digital collage, illustration, performance, fashion design, new media, video, and painting. This diverse collection displays a multifaceted glimpse into the contemporary experience of #QPOC in Texas — a group so often marginalized, stereotyped, and tokenized in popular culture and media.
