Bundanon has 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 a residency in July and October 2021, Hernández will facilitate workshops for St John’s Stage 6 Visual Arts students. The workshops will take place at Bundanon, with the students visiting Hernández in her studio as well as working in their classroom.
The project has been made possible through a grant by VADEA (Visual Arts & Design Educators Association).
About Nadia Hernández
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
