Felicia Mings is the Academic Curator in the department of Academic Engagement and Research at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she co-curated the exhibitions Malangatana: Mozambique Modern (2020) and The People Shall Govern! Medu Art Ensemble and the Anti-Apartheid Poster (2019). She organizes and leads a range of initiatives including the Andrew W. Mellon Summer Academy and Undergraduate Curatorial Fellowship Program, and projects that foster artist and student engagement with the museums collection. At the core of Mings practice is a focus on the intersections between curatorship, community-based arts education, and modern and contemporary art of Africa and the African diaspora. As a Canadian-born and US-based curator and educator, Mings earned her MA in Visual and Critical Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her Honors BA in Art and Art History from the University of Toronto and Sheridan College.
