“Community means a lot to me. As a working class, queer woman of colour… It's really important, it's what I need to survive.”
Rene, 21, is a visual artist and activist analysing the intersections of her identity with the aim to educate, mobilise and empower. Through her work she critiques, exposes, combats and questions power structures within the art world - and society more widely. Her artwork is about the emotional labour that goes into activism and existing as a queer person of colour.
