He is currently working on ‘Documents of Resistance’ and ‘Collective Timelines’ two pedagogical projects that focus on the history of artists and workers of color. Additionally he is a member of Arts & Labor’s Alternative Economies Working Group which organized “What Do We Do Now?” the first alternatives economies fair and resource guide for artists in NYC. Through these and other autonomous collectives he promotes self-organized cultural events, research, education, and artist-as-activist interventions. Antonio also maintains a productive studio practice as a place of experimentation, reflection, and as a balance to working collectively. He has recently developed artCommons, an art-sharing platform for studio artists. Originally from Texas, Antonio has participated and organized projects in New York, Texas, Las Vegas, Spain, Mexico, Berlin, and Romania. Antonio Serna holds a Masters in Fine Arts from Brooklyn College, and a BFA from Parsons School of Art.
