The promise of self portraiture is that we can see ourselves and be seen as
queer, women, non-binary, and people of color. Racialized and gendered bodies
can also be rendered objects and spectacles in their representation. This essay and
interview by Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik in conversation with artists Patrick “Pato”
Hebert and David Lydell Jones, is a dialogue between artists of color that contends
with the problems and possibilities of self representation.
