Residency: December 15, 2019 through March 14, 2020
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.
The LES Studio Program is supported in part by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
