Bio

Sunita Prasad is a Brooklyn-based film, video, and performance artist. Her work has been exhibited internationally at venues and institutions including the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Homesession in Barcelona, Torino Performance Art in Turin, Momenta Art in New York City, and Vox Populi Gallery in Philadelphia. She has received awards from the Art Matters Foundation, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Warner Bros. Production Fund, as well as residencies at TAJ & SKE Projects in Bangalore, the Contemporary Artists Center in Troy NY, and l’Enterprise Culturelle in Paris.

Sunita’s works often employ methods of hybridization between documentary and fiction. These methods have included the insertion of hyperbolic acts of intimacy into public space, the employment of drag as intervention into online communities, and the creation of “misgendered” re-enactments of interview transcripts. Sunita’s projects span a wide variety of subjects, landing frequently on issues of gender, identity, and the history of social movements.

Sunita's collaborations include projects with Laryssa Husiak, Mare Liberum, the Ecocide Project, Red Channels, Some Feminists in Your Neighborhood, Frédéric Durieu, Jean Barberis, and Rabid Hands.
