Kelsey Sky, 2023

Kelsey Sky (she/her) is an interdisciplinary artist, a public school teacher in training, and a cultural anthropology Ph.D. candidate at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Across all her endeavors, Kelsey’s work is inspired by Sylvia Wynter’s call for a “re-enchanted humanism” and by the search for what Ruth Wilson Gilmore has called the “fragments and pieces, experiments and possibilities” of what an abolitionist world will become. As an artist, Kelsey is currently working on a tarot deck to process and transform trauma from childhood sexual abuse, and on an art action to protest an accused rapist on The Graduate Center campus.
