Emma VaranoThey/Them/Theirs Age: born in 2003
Emma "V" Varano is an Aquarius Sun, Pisces Moon, and rising junior at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Emma grew up in rural Danville-- mentioned once in Alison Bechdel's Fun Home-- nestled between the beautiful rolling hills of Pennsylvania.
Emma fell in love with Chicago only within the past year, and giddily feels at the very precipice of their personal, social, and politicized sex lives. Within their personal art practice, they are always excited to blur lines between disciplines, poke fun at dominant normative narratives, and look to using this class as a catalyst for deepening their connection between their art practice, archives, and personal forms of knowledge making.
In their spare time between classes, Emma loves to take pilgrimages to the local library and indulge in the non-circulating HQ6's.
