Vick Quezada (they/them) is an Indigenous-Latinx artist, they queer the archaeological through hybrid forms and aesthetics. Inspired by the guiding principles of Aztec Philosophy, Quezada integrates the theory of interconnected matter and how it’s embedded in the cosmos, planet earth, ecology, and all lifeforms. These elements of matter cannot be governed by sovereign powers as they are inherently queer and infinte. Quezada activates these themes and histories through their work, and this is conveyed by way of digital photography, video, performance and sculpture. Quezada’s exhibited their artwork across the Northeast and featured in BOMB Magazine, Trans Studies Quarterly, and Remezcla. Quezada is currently a fellow at the Leslie Lohman Museum in NYC, and they just completed an artist-in-residence at the Latinx Project NYU and they will be featured amongst a "large-scale survey" of 40 emerging artists from the U.S. and Puerto Rico in El Museo del Barrio's upcoming La Trienal. Vick Quezada holds a BA from the University of Texas at El Paso and an MFA from the UMASS Amherst.
