Christina Freeman is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York City. Her work takes on various forms including photography, video, artists’ books, multimedia installation, participatory performance, and curatorial projects. Whether initiating spontaneous conversation with viewers in public space, or working with an anthropologist or another artist, her practice has a porousness that relies on the participation of others. Creating unconventional rituals, she invites the audience to join in disrupting dominant cultural norms. Intervening in systems often taken for granted, she approaches culture as something we actively shape together.
She received her MFA in Studio Art from Hunter College, City University of New York in 2012 and her BA in Spanish and Latin American Studies from Haverford College in 2005. Freeman’s projects have been featured in Hyperallergic, Art F City, and Greenpointers, as well as Bulgarian National Television and Radio.
Christina is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Fine Arts at Haverford College and has taught in the Department of Art & Art History at Hunter College since 2014. Community-building through transformative conversation motivates all of her work, regardless of whether she is performing, curating, or teaching.
