Christie Neptune

June 2020

Christie Neptune is an interdisciplinary artist working in film, photography, mixed media, and performance arts. Her work investigates the nuances of identity, representation, and how constructs of race, gender, and class limit the personal experiences of historically marginalized bodies of people of color. Neptune holds a BA in visual arts from Fordham University, Lincoln Center Campus. She has screened films and exhibited photography in shows at A.I.R. Gallery (Brooklyn, 2016), The Rubber Factory (New York City, 2017), Rutgers Institute for Women and Art (2014), Union Docs (Brooklyn, 2015), and VOLTA (New York City, 2018). Publications featuring her work include Artforum, Hyperallergic, Juxtapoze Magazine, The Creator’s Project, and The Washington Post. She has won multiple grants and residencies, and was a 2018 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship Program Recipient.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Light Work has supported Christie Neptune via a remote residency from her home in Brooklyn, NY during the month of June 2020.
