Kristina Kay Robinson

Kristina Kay Robinson is a writer, curator, and visual artist born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her written, visual, and curatorial practice centers and interrogates the modern and ancient connections between world communities. Robinson’s work both at home and abroad focuses on the impact of globalization, militarism, and surveillance on society and their intersections with contemporary art and pop culture. Her ongoing installation and performance art project, Republica: Temple of Color and Sound has been presented in an exhibition at “Welcome to the Afrofuture” during Miami Art Week, New Museum’s residency program, Ideas City, and the New Orleans African American Museum. Both iterations of Republica: Temple of Color and Sound received enthusiastic reviews in Sugarcane Magazine and most recently PIN-UP magazine.

Robinson is the co-editor of Mixed Company, a collection of short fiction and visual narratives by women of color. In addition to the anthology, the collective of writers hosted free cultural programming in the city of New Orleans. Notable events included reading and lecture by Black Arts Movement poet, Sonia Sanchez at Le Musée de F.P.C and the American premiere of the award-winning Eritrean- Italian documentary, Asmarina. Robinson’s other curatorial endeavors include Sudanese artist Khalid Abdel Rahman’s “A Disappearance” hosted in 2017 by the Arts Council of New Orleans.
