Malene Barnett is an artist, activist, and authority on the cultural traditions and practices of art in the African diaspora and how it translates into her vision of the modern black experience.

As the founder of the Black Artists + Designers Guild, a global platform and curated collective of independent black artists, makers, and designers, Barnett seeks out new ways to define the black narrative and experience for a new generation, while bringing awareness to inequality. She’s also on the board for CERF+, an organization that provides emergency loans to artisans and craftspeople during natural disasters.
