Gui Portel

"Para Mi Gente" (For my people)

"Para Mi Gente" (For my people) is a public poem in 3 parts installed on the roof of the Greensboro Project Space (GPS) and The Forge Greensboro. Part of GPS's existing #CityBillboardProject, the 3 individual couplets were visible for 2 weeks each to audiences of over +10,000 daily commuters (1/9/20-2/26/20). 


Gui Portel (they/them pronouns) is a queer, immigrant artist with over 4 years experience in arts organizing, event coordination, education, theatre production, and photography. Portel lives on ancestral lands of the Cheraw and the Occaneechi Band (present-day Greensboro, NC).
As a descendant of both Guaraní matriarchs and Spanish colonizers, they often think about visualizing the amplification of marginalized narratives, collective deviation within social constructs, disruption of art presentation, and "new" recipes.
