Katrina Andry

BIO Katrina Andry (b. 1981, New Orleans, LA, USA) challenges the ideology of individualism by examining inequalities and resulting degradation as the result of our color-based prejudices. She argues the belief in individualism allows Americans to turn a blind eye to inequality, suggesting barriers to well-being lie with the individual and not also within our social structures, in spite of documentation of the collective experiences of these groups and data on outcomes of disfavored groups.... />
Andry earned an MFA in Printmaking from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA. She has participated in exhibitions at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, NY, and Marc Straus Gallery, New York, NY, as well as had solo exhibitions at The Halsey Institute in Charleston, SC and the Hammonds House Museum in Atlanta, GA. In 2021, Andry was a participating artist in Prospect.5. Andry’s work can be found in the prominent art collections of 21C Museum, Saint Louis, MO, the Petrucci Family Foundation, the New Orleans Museum of Art, Union College, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, LA. Andry currently lives and works in New Orleans where she maintains a studio.

Nic[o] Brierre Aziz is a Haitian-New Orleanian interdisciplinary artist and curator born and raised in New Orleans, LA. His current practice is deeply community focused and rooted around the utilization of underdiscussed personal and collective histories to reimagine the future. His work is also very centered around the Caribbean Diaspora and he is very interested in Blackness as an experience, construct and capitalist tool. He has worked extensively leading community engaged projects throughout New Orleans with entities such as the Office of Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Antenna, The Joan Mitchell Center, the Arts Council of New Orleans, Prospect and most recently the New Orleans Museum of Art. He is also the manager of the Haitian Cultural Legacy Collection, a collection of over 400 artworks started by his maternal grandfather in 1944. He has contributed to publications such as HuffPost, Terremoto and Hyperallergic and his work has been featured by The Oxford American, The Associated Press and The Alternative UK. He is also the recipient of several artist residencies and fellowships and most recently was selected as a 2020 Andy Warhol Foundation Curatorial Fellow and a 2021 Joan Mitchell Center Artist-in-Residence. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Morehouse College, a Master of Science degree from The University of Manchester (UK) and will be pursuing a Master of Fine Arts Degree with a concentration in Sculpture from the Yale University School of Art starting in Fall 2023.
