Nicole Gervacio is an interdisciplinary artist based in Oakland, California (Huichin territory). Her work integrates various methods and mediums – from visual work to movement, video to written word. She is inspired by the body, memory, destruction, and deterioration, permanence versus impermanence, and is driven by the fear of forgetting.
Nicole received her BFA at California College of the Arts and has exhibited her work with organizations including People of Coloring, Urban X Indigenous, The Flight Deck, Rock Paper Scissors Collective, and is associated with the contemporary Filipinx visual artists collective Epekto Art Projects. Her words, poetry, and visual art have been published in Ano Ba Zine, The Pilipinx Radical Imagination Reader, The South Seattle Emerald, Mills Quarterly, and collaborative zines produced through We Rise.
Since 2016, Nicole has been an active participant and collaborator with the grassroots adult freedom school Liberation Spring. She is also co-founder of the collaborative cultural production team We Rise. Both continue to deepen and support her work as an artist and activist.
