Why do we equate a relief of responsibility with artistic freedom?  What if serving as a spokesperson for other HUMANS (regardless of the many fictions of identity) was viewed as a privilege? What if we considered creative practice as necessarily transcendent and universal by default?  What if someone, who does not identify as white or male, was relatively unconcerned with the modes of practice or how whitemen were viewed by an audience?  What if all the aspects of identity that are described as “lesser”, “oppressed”, “minority”, “black”, “child”, “female”, “trans”, “gay”, etc. were exalted in status, and, in fact a privilege to carry?
