Sydney G. James' Codeswitchonya Drops For International Women's Day

In celebration of International Women's Day 2018 we are proud to welcome Detroit's own Sydney G. James as she returns with her latest edition Codeswitchonya. Pulled hot off the press (wall) from this year's POW! WOW! Hawaii 2018, this image finds James exploring her ongoing series Appropriated Not Appreciated which as she explains examines "the premise that many want black women attributes, but NO ONE wants black women problems." Read on as Sydney G. James gives us the story behind her most recent mural and edition, and be sure to grab yours before they are gone . . .

ABOUT THIS ART

The framing option for this RUN includes a 1 inch black wood frame with UV-glass, foam core backing and ready to hang hardware.

"'Codeswitchonya' is a repurposed play on OutKast’s 'Stankonia' album cover. While this piece directly pays homage to my favorite hip hop group of all time, it speaks on a much larger issue. The subject in this piece is one woman painted wearing different garments with very different hair. It’s highlighting the fact that most people 'code switch' but black women in this society and beyond have to do it the most. We are constantly in the act of making those around us 'comfortable.' Be it our looks, hair, tone of voice, subtle actions or aggressive actions, we are seldom accepted as our true selves." - Sydney G. James
