Kiss Me, I'm Passing for White, or An Invitation, a Declaration, and a Warning, (White on White) is part of a limited edition series. This series examines the practice of identity declaration. How do we use quotidian opportunities to make assertions about our identities? Which identities are asserted and celebrated ("Kiss me, I'm Irish/Italian/Polish/Vegan"), and which are not?

More significant, how does "passing for white" affect people of color?

T-shirts are available for pre-sale. Contact the artist for information.
