Cece Carpio

b. Philippines
Lives in Oakland and works in San Francisco

Cece Carpio created four new portraits for Come to Your Census: Who Counts in America? The Actual Enumeration series depict figures from various communities who are not currently represented in the 2020 Census. Their presence serves as an acknowledgment that these people and their communities have greatly contributed to the United States, despite their absence from the Census categories.

Carpio’s works give light to those whom the Census does not count and asks, how are those who are not counted remembered?

These portraits from the Actual Enumeration series are part of Come to Your Census: Who Counts in America?, an art and civic experience intended to drive awareness and mobilize the diverse communities of the Bay Area around the urgent, long-term impact of the 2020 US Census.
