ART & ACTIVISM: HOW ARE BIPOC ARTISTS SHAKING THINGS UP?
January 19, 2021
One of Eighth Generation's core values is representation. As an arts-centric company, we have a mission to bring authentic, cultural art to the global economy. We want to see a market that reflects the diversity of its consumers. Likewise, we want ourselves and our communities to be able to identify with artists and businesses.
Our team is inspired by the success of artists and entrepreneurs engaged in activism, so Eighth Generation staff came together to use our platform to share a handful of Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) artists based all over! From industries like tattoo and body modification, fashion, jewelry, visual art and social justice, these are artists you want on your radar.

Seeing Rhoda at 950 Gallery was my last normal day before all the closures and gathering restrictions. Organized by Paige Pettibon, the exhibition features her work alongside pieces by her grandmother, Rhoda Hayward, and many members of their extended family. Until her passing in 2017, Rhoda was constantly creating and gifting in community, but this is the first time her artwork has been shown publicly. This is Paige’s first time curating and showing a large body of her own work too.
