Alicia Grullón

BRAC Teaching Artist, Cultural Immigrant Initiative Project, Spring 2017

Alicia Grullón is an interdisciplinary artist whose vision is to use art to create a world that does not yet exist. Whether through socially-engaged projects, performance, works on paper, video, or photography, she takes into account the use of space as a site of social construction, where issues of race, class, gender, and activism open. Her involvement comes from wanting to rewrite history, interrupting traditional dialogues in order to show a perspective closer to that lived by people. She immerses herself, drawing from intersectional feminist and critical race theories in her campaign to decolonize the world through art. Her role as an artist in the community is a question she has been exploring in socially-engaged work and performance art pieces. She sees that art, like politics, questions how we establish our presence in the world.

Why I Teach: “Teaching is one of the only professions that require you to continue learning, and to be up-to-date on every single angle of your subject. Teaching is optimistic.”
