NAIMA GREEN is a Brooklyn-based artist and educator. Her work emerges as a way to shift dynamics about who is worthy of having a portrait made and to recontextualize the way black and queer experiences are pictured, understood, and therefore lived. Her conceptual inquiries position as primary the body and language as a way of indexing, collecting, and archiving forms of subjectivity. She thinks of the body as a site of experimentation, one that is fluid, and where notions of access and transformation can be examined. Naima holds an MFA in Photography from ICP–Bard, an MA from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a BA from Barnard College, Columbia University. Solo exhibitions in 2018 include All the Black Language and A Collective Utterance. Her work has been at MASS MoCA (2018), International Center of Photography (2018), Houston Center for Photography (2017), Bronx Museum (2017), BRIC (2015 and 2016), Arsenal Gallery (2015) and Macy Gallery (2013 and 2014). Green has been an artist-in-residence at the Bronx Museum (2016), Vermont Studio Center (2015), and recipient of the Myers Art Prize at Columbia University (2013). Her work has been published in Arts.Black, The Atlantic, California Sunday, Cultured, The Fader, The Nation, New York Magazine, The New York Times, Spot Magazine, and SPOOK, amongst others.
