Renae Moua “R.L. Muas” is a first-generation Hmong/American interdisciplinary artist, designer and community arts organizer residing on Ohlone land. Their art practice intersects new media and analogue aesthetics with postcolonial theory, queer insurrectionary thought, and a DIY ethos to further shape how we empower collective liberation and autonomous futures. Currently they are working towards integration of 3D/motion design and projection technology to build speculative landscapes that interrogate digital identity in cyberspace, algorithmic oppression, and its relationship to imperialist logics, power and violence.
As an arts organizer, their work centers the intentions of trust, mutual care, and compassion within their respective communities. With the support of their friends and accomplices, they have developed over thirty free gallery exhibitions and arts programs since 2016. Outside of these projects, they are a member of SAMA Collective, a POC worker-owned café, resource hub, and curatorial project dedicated to building community at the axis of identity, creativity and labor.
