This event has been canceled. Stay tuned for future Art on the Ground events. 

Art on the Ground, founded by Shameekia S. Johnson and sponsored by the Department of History of Art at FIT, welcomes Duneska Michel (she/they), an artist-educator, community organizer, and founder of Guanábana, a collective dedicated to centering the voices of Black folks with Antillean roots, including the Greater and Lesser Antilles.

This conversation explores Duneska’s journey of becoming an artist and educator, her finding and expansion of Guanábana, and her vision for Guanábana’s future. Duneska Michel has worked for various galleries and cultural institutions, including NURTUREArt, the Children’s Museum of the Arts, No Longer Empty, and the Museum of Arts and Design. In her artistic practice, Michel dissects the notion of “home” concerning an individual’s identity. Through her programming, she aims to create spaces that serve as a haven for students and community members alike.

This virtual event is free and open to the public; find registration details for the event on the Art History and Museum Professions website.
