Chantal Feitosa is a Brazilian American artist from Queens, New York. Her process shifts between new media, collage, and social practice to address themes of racial bias, beauty standards, and belonging. In her work, she often replicates systems of childhood education and play through performance and object-making. Through these systems, she is interested in how pedagogy, language, and humor can exist as creative mediums to address narratives of historical marginalization and trauma. She received her BFA in Film/Animation/Video from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) with a concentration in Literary Arts & Studies. In 2016 she was a co-producer in the student documentary, “The Room of Silence”, which has been featured nationally in publications, screenings, and public conversations on the need for racial equity in art school curriculum and critique structures.
