Angélica Dass: Humanae: Celebrating how colourful we are

Thursday, June 16, 1 pm
Zoom

Join artist Angélica Dass for a talk about her internationally acclaimed Humanae project, a photographic work in progress and collection of over 4000 portraits that reveal the diverse beauty of humanity. 

Angélica Dass is a photographer whose remarkable Humanæ project has been featured across the globe, and continues to evolve as a tool for social change. Creating hundreds of individual portraits matched to Pantone colour-matched backgrounds, Angelica's work documents and showcases the remarkable diversity of human skin colour, countering the usual labels “white”, “red”, “black” and “yellow” associated with race. Her ongoing project is in constant evolution, as it seeks to demonstrate that what defines the human being is uniqueness and, therefore, diversity. Angelica's work involves sociological research and engages public participation in global defense of human rights. Her TED Talk, with over 2 million views, makes clear that photography can be a powerful tool for social change, promoting dialogue and challenging cultural prejudices.

Presented in partnership with AIC 2022: Sensing Colour, Midterm meeting of the International Colour Organization (AIC), organized by the Colour Research Society of Canada
