Artist Daniel Joseph Martinez originally proposed text for a tote at the Whitney Biennale in 1993, but after it was deemed too controversial, he instead submitted the now iconic, "I can't imagine ever wanting to be white." The New Museum worked with Martinez to create this limited edition silkscreen Baggu tote of the original text, a message that still resonates today. Crafted of recycled cotton, the bag comes complete with an adjustable shoulder strap, interior pocket and snap closure.
