Nicole Marroquin

She collaborated with V. Robin Grice in "Bi-Lingual." They write of their process:

"This collaborative installation is a part of an ongoing conversation between two artists about the multi-dimensional realities and requirements of being women of color in contemporary American society. Through the figure and various constructed objects, we're attempting to locate the everyday realities of patriarchy, racism, and class bias, and to connect these systems of oppression to our particular stories of girlhood, family relationships, and work life. While we tell very different stories, our goal is to explore what it means to be marginalized within the rubric of post-modernity as well as to imagine and acknowledge the possibilities for true diversity."
