Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez is a Colombo-American, mid-career artist with an interdisciplinary practice. She grew up in Colombia as the child of a Colombian and a United States citizen and migrated to the US as an adult. Her art is about the curious and intense experience of having physically migrated, yet still having a piece of herself rooted in Colombia. She is creating an intersectional feminist visual novel that is a multifaceted project comprised of paintings, sculptures, objects, and mixed media that together—and in different voices—weave a synchronicity of dialogues, passages, and punctuations about hybridity and cultural ownership.
She is in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art; she participated at the 20 Congreso Internacional: La Experiencia Intelectual de las Mujeres en el Siglo XXI in 2012 in Mexico City. Shows include Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, The Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, Blue Star Contemporary, The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, La Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador, Sheldon Museum of Art at the University of Nebraska, Joslyn Art Museum, Portland Museum of Art, El Museo del Barrio, and Bronx Museum of the Arts.
She was awarded the Doctorow Prize in Painting, a Nebraska Arts Council grant, a Smithsonian Artist Reseach Fellowship, a Puffin Foundation grant, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, a National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures grant, and was nominated to the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the United States Artists fellowships, the Rema Hort Mann Foundation, and to the Anonymous Was A Woman Award. She was a resident at Art Omi, Fountainhead, Tamarind Institute, Yaddo, Gasworks, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, and Bronx Museum of the Arts.
