Christie Neptune

Christie Neptune is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist working across film, photography, mixed media and performance arts. Neptune investigates how constructs of race, gender, and class limit the personal experiences of historically marginalized bodies of color. Critically aware of both self and subjectivity, Neptune illuminates the personal and emotional aftermath of a society that disregards and delegitimatizes those that endure the brunt of historically upheld supremacies.

Neptune’s films and photography have been included in shows at VOLTA, New York, NY (2018); The Rubber Factory, New York, NY (2017); A.I.R. Gallery, Brooklyn, NY (2016); Union Docs, Brooklyn, NY (2015); and Rutgers, Institute for Women and Art (2014). She has been featured in publications including Artforum, Hyperallergic, The Creator’s Project, Juxtapoze Magazine and The Washington Post. Neptune is an alumni of More Art’s Engaging Artists Residency, the Hamiltonian Gallery Fellowship, The Bronx Museum of The Arts: AIM Fellowship, Smack Mellon studio residency through the New York Community Trust Van Lier Fellowship and the NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship. Neptune is a 2018 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant Recipient and a 2019 NXTHVN Studio Fellow.
