STATEMENT/BIO

Christie Neptune (b. 1986, Brooklyn, NY) is an interdisciplinary artist working across film, photography, mixed media and performance arts. Neptune investigates how constructs of race, gender, and class limit the personal experiences of historically marginalized bodies of color. Critically aware of both self and subjectivity, Neptune illuminates the personal and emotional aftermath of a society that disregards and delegitimatizes those that endure the brunt of historically upheld supremacies.

Neptune films and photography have been included in shows at VOLTA, New York, NY (2018); The Rubber Factory, New York, NY (2017); A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn, NY (2016); Union Docs, Brooklyn, NY (2015); and Rutgers, Institute for Women and Art (2014). She has been featured in publications including Artforum, Hyperallergic, The Creator’s Project, Juxtapoze Magazine and The Washington Post. Neptune is an alumni of More Art’s Engaging Artists Residency, The Hamiltonian Gallery Fellowship, The Bronx Museum of The Arts: Artist in Marketplace (AIM) and Smack Mellon studio residency through the New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellowship. She is a 2018 Artadia New York Finalist, NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship Program Recipient, Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant Recipient and MASS MoCA Asset 4 Artist Studio Artist in Residence.
