After a short hiatus, we’re happy to share a new episode on decolonizing college art curriculum with Shylah Pacheco Hamilton and Vreni Michelini-Castillo.
Shylah Pacheco Hamilton is an Afro-Surrealist filmmaker whose creative research interests meet at the crossroads of experimental video, Black and Chicana feminist theory, and ritual performance. Her most recent work consists of experimental video and installation that explores social justice, memory, dreams, and ritual performance of the sacred. She is Chair of Diversity Studies at California College of the Arts, and teaches in the First Year Program.
Vreni Michelini-Castillo a/k/a Chhoti Maa is a multidisciplinary cultural producer with 11 years of experience working through art, cultural organizing, music, red medicine and traditional Mexican danza. She teaches at 67 Sueños, California College of the Arts, and San Francisco State University.
