Nereida Patricia (b. 1996, New York) is a multidisciplinary artist and writer based in
Chicago, IL. Nereida’s practice spans sculpture, text, and performance, and
explores themes of history, trans poetics, and identity. Her work draws from
postcolonial and feminist theory, Peruvian symbolism, as well as autobiographical
fragments, to build new mythologies around the transformation of the human body.
She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute Chicago and
has also studied at The New School. Her work has been exhibited at venues
including Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; Museum of Contemporary Art
Detroit; Roots and Culture, Chicago; Prairie Gallery, Chicago; Annka Kultys,
London; the Museum of the Moving Image, Queens; The Knockdown Center,
Queens; and POWERPLNT, Brooklyn, among others.
