Co-Curator Zora J Murff had a conversation with Taylor Kigar of Aint-Bad Magazine about Strange Fire Collective.
"...I feel that this exclusion boils down to bias (inherent or otherwise) that has become built into the art world, not unlike a lot of systems and institutions that society has constructed. As with any social-justice issue, it is the responsibility of those in power to constantly question their motives and their bias rather than leaving it up to those affected by bias to educate them. However, waiting around for those individuals to do that, and do it honestly, would be naive. Through combining all of our unique positions in the art world, and life in general, Strange Fire becomes a collective voice that can challenge the dominant social hierarchy by promoting the work of those from diverse cultural backgrounds."
