Farieda Nazier

Farieda Nazier is a Johannesburg-based educator, artist and researcher. She is employed at the University of Johannesburg as a Senior Lecturer and Head of Department.  As an artist and research practitioner, Nazier's work explores the psychological and affective consequences of colonial historical legacy. She employs evocative installation-based assemblages, to engage in discursive opportunities within her practice, amongst publics and within educational domains. She is particularly interested in curatorial and archival practices within museum spaces - ways of representing and engaging with memory-work. Nazier has curated and participated in several art exhibitions, both in South Africa and internationally. Most recently, she produced the 'Post Present Future' intervention hosted by the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. As part of her wide-ranging practice, Nazier worked with Alberta Whittle to choreograph and perform 'Right of Admission' within a range of contexts including the 56th Venice Biennale. Nazier has been widely recognised as an academic researcher with presentations at Goldsmith's University (London, UK), Principia College (Elsah, USA), MCLA (Williamstown, USA) and Williams College (Williamstown, USA). Her writing has appeared in a broad scope of publications ranging from academic peer-reviewed journals such as the international Education as Change journal to educational books such as the Cambridge Rainbow Readers series.
