Nyugen E. Smith (MFA 2016) is a first-generation Caribbean-American interdisciplinary artist based in Jersey City, New Jersey. Through performance, found object sculpture, mixed media drawing, painting, video, photo, and writing, Smith deepens his knowledge of historical and present-day conditions of Black African descendants in the diaspora. Trauma, spiritual practices, language, violence, memory, architecture, landscape, and climate change are primary concerns in his practice.
Presented in partnership with SAIC Alumni Relations.
