Nafis M. White (b. Fort Worth, Texas)
Nafis White works in sculpture, photography, video, collage, sound and performance exploring issues of identity, equality, politics and landscape, using
personal narratives to facilitate and build conversations with the viewer. Her approach is one that is heavily influenced by conceptualism, aesthetics
and climate, both political and social, with much of her work inspired by the current Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Nafis employs many
different strategies in the way that she visualizes and creates work, utilizing a multidisciplinary approach to her art making.
White received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Sculpture with a Concentration in Art History before embarking on a year-long program at the University of London, Goldsmiths in the UK. Nafis is currently studying at the Rhode Island School of Design as an MFA Candidate in Digital + Media.
