About the Artists: Anthony Romero and Caca Yvaire
Anthony Romero is a Boston-based artist, writer, and organizer committed to documenting and supporting artists and communities of color. His collaborative practice engages intercultural contact and historical narratives in order to generate reparative counter-images and social transformation. Recent projects and performances have been featured at The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts (Omaha), the Blue Star Contemporary (San Antonio), The Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston) and the Mountain Standard Time Performative Art Biennial (Calgary, Canada).
Çaca Yvaire is an Afro-Indigenous territorial scholar-practitioner and student of planetary science, political geoecology, and the arts. He brings a unique lens to conservation work. He is primarily invested in stimulating and uplifting an infrastructure that supports a rich and imaginative solidarity between lifeways, and honoring the varied traditions of relating sustainably to the world around us through non-industrial agroecology, agriculture, silviculture, aquaculture, etc. that have been historically side-lined by imperialist design.
