Kim Baglieri is a painter, filmmaker and educator based in Brooklyn. Baglieri frequently draws from her FIlipinx and Armenian ancestries, as well as her queerness, shifting between painting, documentary and sound to investigate the body, ancestral technologies, storytelling, plant and earth wisdom and spiritual and invisible dimensions. She often uses animal shapes and symbols as stand-ins for human experience. Her work complicates ways of knowing and locates past and future within the ever-shifting present. She has a BA from Bard College and an MFA from Hunter College Integrated Media Arts. Kim is also a Reiki 2 practitioner and is proudly neuro-divergent. For the past 5 years she has taught visual arts to NYC public elementary school children through Studio in a School Association and before that through other NYC arts organizations.
