Kira Manso Brown

Kira Manso Brown previously worked in museums, for a preservation archive, and even as assistant to a former ship’s doctor and anthropologist. While at Columbia University, Kira studied how the worlds of aesthetics, performance, religion and social justice intersect. She has produced nonconventional performance that interrogates these intersections and credits early exposure to family and community values of activism and philanthropy for leading her towards her work. A native New Yorker, she lives in Brooklyn and welcomes any opportunity to improve her Spanish and Yiddish.
