Faith J. McKinnie is a curator practicing on the unceded land of the Nisenan. Her practice is multidimensional but remains rooted in the prioritization and care of artists who find their work outside the imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchal margins of the art historical canon. Through curatorial intervention + critical discourse, she interrogates visual culture and its relationship to post-colonialism, feminist & race theories, migration, land degradation, and the historicity of the personal narrative.
She has lectured on curatorial activism at the University of Chicago, the University of California Davis, Sierra College, and both California State Universities, Sacramento and Stanislaus. She serves as a curatorial mentor for the City of Sacramento’s inaugural Emerging Curator’s Program, she is the founder of the Sacramento Curatorial Collective, the DEIA board chair at Capital Creative Alliance and a founding board member of the Sacramento Alliance for Regional Art. She holds a B.A. in Art History.
