Joseph A. Cuillier III is an artist, designer, and educator working in social practice, textile art, installation, printmaking, and poetry. Cuillier’s interdisciplinary practice engages with language in space, abstraction as a technology, and transformative potential of Black radical pedagogy. His visual art centers on deconstructing appropriated imagery to create counter histories and his installations combine fashion and architecture to attempt to bridge gaps between visual rhetoric and action. Cuillier (b. 1988, New Orleans, LA), is a Harlem-based artist, designer, and educator. He achieved an MFA from Pratt Institute and is a current faculty member at Parsons and Pratt. His work has been exhibited and presented internationally in galleries and museums, including the New Museum, the Bronx Museum, the MoMA Library, and Wallach Gallery at Columbia University. Cuillier has been an artist-in-residence/fellow at Sweet Water Foundation, Ideas City, and Antenna (2019), New Museum (2018), The Laundromat Project (2017), and A Blade Grass (2016). Cuillier is the founder and co-director of The Black School and Black Love Fest NY and HTX.
