KT Pe Benito (they/them/siya) is a time-based interdisciplinary artist, arts administrator, caregiver, and organizer navigating access and dismantling dominator culture.

The arc of their work is about strengthening their relationship to queer Filipinx lineage and Fil-Am community building through artmaking and organizing for human rights in the Philippines. They devote & dedicate these endeavors to their late Filipinx/a/o grandmother.

KT creates artwork to sustain victim.survivor futurity, leaning into humor and impulse with their art to transform their existence and to embrace ease. Their interdisciplinary practice utilizes writing, performance, installation, video, and drawing to offer different points to access their own ideas and for people experiencing their work.
