Ladin Awad is an artist, curator and creative producer based in NYC. Raised in the Bay Area by way of Sudan, her work seeks to abstract the narratives and histories through which cross-cultural Black diasporic life is viewed and understood. Through a multidisciplinary practice, she charts the multidimensionality of Blackness, while exploring expansions and interventions on our collective relationships to movement, memory, and time. Her work is concerned with image making modalities that center interiority, subjectivity and world-making, especially as it relates to Black feminist pedagogies.
Ladin received her BA from The New School in Global Studies and her Masters in Art and Public Policy from New York University. She is one of three founding members of of CHROMA, a cultural agency and creative studio that centers the work and perspectives of WOC.
