R.L. Muas (b. 1991) is a first generation Hmong/American interdisciplinary artist, educator and radical community arts organizer residing on Ohlone land. Their projects are concerned with digital media, cyberspace, diasporic visual culture, and its relationship to capitalism, power, and IRL curated violence. Their teaching and creative practice intersects the visual arts with Critical Race Theory, Queer of Color Critique, and a DIY ethos to further shape how we empower collective liberation and autonomous futures.
They recently completed their second solo curated exhibition THANK YOU FOR NOTHING as part of their Emerging Curator Fellowship with the Asian American Women Artists Association. Currently, they are working towards an M.A. in Ethnic Studies at SF State, and serving as the Visual Arts Curator in Residence at SOMArts Cultural Center.
