Jordany Genao is a Dominican interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Queens, NY (Lenapehoking). Their work has a reverence for nature while also building on Dominican folk art and identity, which pays homage to Arawak-Taino ancestry. Their practice emphasizes visual and theoretical connections between Arawak-taino cosmology, ceramics, Caribbean plants, and queer theory. They work primarily in ceramics, sculpture, and mixed media, with an emphasis on tactility, embodiment, and abstraction. Since Genao received their BFA from SVA in 2014, their work has been featured in group shows at Flux Factory and Turley Gallery, among others. They completed their MFA at Hunter College in May 2023.
