Stephanie Cuyubamba Kong is an American
artist and educator interested in the narrative possibilities within language, vernacular culture, and socio-musical memory. She believes in illuminating marginalized histories and promoting intersectional approaches to education, art, and performance. Ultimately, she sees art as a vehicle for agency in how stories are told.
Her research-based practice currently revolves around reggaetón discourse, utopia, and snack locality. As an artist, writer, and musician she is fascinated by language and its most abstracted forms. Her work enters the in-between spaces of identity: sometimes confusing, sometimes contradictory, but also purposefully celebrating the liminal spaces in cultural and personal narratives. Through the likes of portraiture, writing, photographs, and performances she aims to bring forward new ideas on how we construct cultures and what it means to blur the lines across the complexities of identity.
