niv Acosta

August 28 — September 18

niv Acosta is a multimedia artist and activist based in Brooklyn, NY, whose intersectional identities as transgender, queer, and black-dominican have continuously inspired his community-based work. niv’s current projects, including Black Power Naps, are devised in collaboration with Black artists as propositions for how reparative economies can better hold communities of color. niv’s work examines the intersection of race and performance through the creation of iterative works that distill large concepts into greater clarity. niv’s work has been featured in many publications including Performance Journal, VICE, Brooklyn Magazine, Apogee Journal, BOMB Magazine and more. His performance work has debuted in various programs around the world including Tate Modern, Tanz Im August & Kunst-Werke Institut, MOMA PS1, Studio Museum, New Museum, and McGill University.
