APPLY FOR A RESIDENCY - Applications for Bundanon's 2025 Artists in Residence program are now open


Nadia Hernandez

Art Form: Visual Art

Residency Years: 2022, 2018

Lives / works: Gadigal, Eora

Nadia Hernández is an emerging artist originally from Mérida, Venezuela, currently based in Sydney, Australia. Her visual arts practice is informed specifically by the current political climate of her home country and her diasporic experience as a Venezuelan woman living abroad. Articulated through textiles, paper constructions, painting, music, installations, sculptures and murals, her identity allows her, or perhaps encourages her, to create work that negotiates complex political narratives through the personal, the institutional and their intersections.

Hernández holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Queensland University of Technology, has partaken in both solo and group exhibitions across Australia and was selected as the official artist for City of Sydney’s NYE 2017

In residence at Bundanon

In 2021 Bundanon partnered with St John The Evangelist Catholic High School in Nowra to present This Is Our Time; an Artist in School project with Nadia Hernández.

During the project Hernández facilitated workshops for St John’s Stage 6 Visual Arts students. The project has been made possible through a grant by VADEA (Visual Arts & Design Educators Association).


Bundanon acknowledges the people of the Dharawal and Dhurga language groups as the traditional owners of the land within our boundaries, and recognises their continuous connection to culture, community and Country.
