Performance/Photography/Art & creative organizing within anti-orientalist and queer radical conversations || mostly coffee & all about the golden rule
Nabeela Vega is a South Asian gender/queer media artist with an interest in creative organizing. Their expressions utilize photography, performance and moving image to explore post 9/11 narratives that intersect with South Asian diasporic experiences.
Vega maintains the personal is political- which expands the work from an orientalist lens into considering its role in digital, intimate and banal spaces. Aesthetically, these narratives follow several tropes. Most commonly: persona, gold and autobiography, to build and communicate with the viewer.
Their work has been exhibited nationally, internationally & in publications like The Boston Globe, The Washington Post & The Aerogram. Vega is creator of VIX: Virtual International Exchange & 1/2 of RQP: Radical Queer Possibilities.
