Joseph Cuillier


The Black School (TBS) is an experimental art school teaching Black/PoC students and allies to become agents of change through art workshops on radical Black politics and public interventions that address local community needs. Founded by Joseph Cuillier III and Shani Peters, TBS has facilitated over 60 workshops and hosted three annual Black Love Festivals to date. Our work has been supported by The New Museum, The Studio Museum, Chicago Architecture Biennial, A Blade of Grass, The Laundromat Project, The New School, LMCC, Sugar Hill Children’s Museum, and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. In partnership with The Bronx Museum of Art we recently launched TBS: Studio - an apprentice staffed art and design firm using graphic design, civic engagement, and radical education models to design solutions dependent on (social/cultural/political/economic) context.
