BFA Class of 2021
Sidney Chuckas creates and educates through his art spanning the fields of dance, fine art, music, architecture, and technology with a focus on dismantling racial politics and social constructions. His bold and invigorating works explore representation, both in the academic and secular landscapes, while working to maintain the necessary recognition of embodied history and intersectionality in the spaces he shares with others. Dancing since the age of five as well as acting, singing, and being a self-taught musician in mostly white spaces, has driven Chuckas to make, collaborate in, and converse with works that strive to honestly share the misrepresented and invisibilized narratives of BIPOC and LGBT+ individuals as well as utilize his own diverse experiences across many art forms to engage in others’ work. Chuckas will graduate from the University of Southern California with a BFA in Dance and a minor in Architecture with hopes to obtain a Master’s of Architecture, L.E.E.D. Certification in sustainable practices, and continue in his career in dance. With an educational background in Architecture and Dance, Chuckas hopes to design his own creative firm, as the creative director, with a mission to restore, amplify, and preserve the voices and narratives of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ creatives.
