Breach! An antonym for token 
Kayza DeGraff-Ford, Excel Garay, Morgan Mitchell, Jean Serutoke and Wren Tian-Morris, undergraduate exhibitors 

Exhibition organizer Excel Garay offers: “Breach! An antonym for token is a group exhibition that references the ways in which BIPOC bodies are used as reified raw objects for promotions to gain cultural capital. This creates an image of a performatively progressive institution under the guise of ‘inclusivity’ and acts as automated absolution from taking necessary steps for systemic change. The work will manifest as satirical renditions of printed recruitment material, performance, and art objects from multiple mediums which will be displayed like retail storefronts. The exhibition is by six emerging artists of color: Morgan Mitchell, Kayza DeGraff-Ford, Wren Tian-Morris, Jean Serutoke, and Excel Garay.”
