We put our colors together. Escola Valldaura

As part of a program on women artists, at the Escola Valldaura they have worked inspirated in Humanae. Mixing the primary colors, each student looked for their own skin color and painted their self-portrait, then they painted a sheet with the colors of their classmates and each one pasted a new self-portrait which they colored this time with unreal skin colors. With the works they formed a small exhibition inside the school and invited all the parents to visit it. 




For the students it was very significant, they were able to recognize themselves in diversity and in worthiness. It was fun, different, profound. We discovered many ways to approach diversity in an artistic way

About Humanae

Humanae is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass. Currently composed of almost 4,000 portraits from volunteers all around the globe, Humanæ pursues to document humanity’s true colors and bring up a critical reflection on the white, red, black and yellow false labels associated with race. The project does not select participants and there is no date set for its completion.  It is a journey of open-ended possibilities that enriches the way we see ourselves, beyond faces and colors. Nowadays, the artist has been doing portraits in 36 different cities and 20 different countries.
