Chantal Feitosa is a Brazilian American artist from New York City. Her fractured identity as a bilingual, binational, and biracial daughter of immigrants has led her to label much of work and process as “collage”. Her practice exists between video, photography, and social practice to address themes of racial bias, beauty standards, and belonging. By replicating systems of childhood play and learning through performance and object-making, she is interested in how pedagogy and language can exist as fine art mediums. She received her BFA in Film/Animation/Video from the Rhode Island School of Design with a concentration in Literary Arts & Studies. During her time at RISD, she served as a co-organizer in the creation of “The Room of Silence”: a viral documentary with student testimonials addressing the need for racial equity in art school critique. She has worked on education programs through arts organizations such as Free Arts NYC and the New Museum of Contemporary Art and has been a visiting teaching artist at the Queens Council on the Arts.
