Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga

Hunter College
Ricardo Miranda Zúñiga is an artist who seeks to establish dialogue in public spaces. Having been born of immigrant parents and grown up between Nicaragua and San Francisco, an awareness of inequality and discrimination was established at an early age. The ways that inequality and power manifest themselves in our lives are consistent threads in Ricardo's work. Themes such as immigration, discrimination and the effects of monetization extend from highly subjective experiences and observations into works that tactically engage others through popular metaphors while maintaining critical perspectives. Ricardo is a professor of Emerging Media at Hunter College CUNY and President of the Board of Directors, Franklin Furnace.
