Portrait of Nicole Marroquin


Nicole Marroquin is an artist who explores spatial justice, belonging and Latinx history through projects that decenter dominant narratives to address displacement and erasure. Through research and creative practice, she aims to recover and re-present histories of Black and brown youth and women’s leadership in the struggle for justice. Recently she has presented projects at the Institute for the Humanities at the University of Michigan, the Kochi Biennale, the Annual Conference of the American Association of Research Librarians, University of Maine, New York Archivist Round Table, Jane Addams Hull House Museum, DePaul Museum of Art, on WLPN Lumpen Radio, Gallery 400, Hyde Park Art Center and more. Her essays are included in the Visual Art Research Journal, Counter-Signals, the Chicago Social Practice History Series, Revista Contratiempo, Where the Future Came From, and Organize Your Own: The Politics and Poetics of Self-Determination Movements. She is a 2022 United States Artist Fellowship recipient and a member of the Justseeds and Chicago ACT collectives.
