The Conglomerate

The Conglomerate

A Conglomerate is a number of different things or parts that are put or grouped together to form a whole but remain distinct entities. Despite the differences in their mediums and presentation, these artists of color all apprehend the conditions of our lives and articulate them in such a manner they become tangible as propositions and questions, uniquely the minority experience.
