Nicole Gervacio is an interdisciplinary artist based in Oakland, California (Huichin territory). Nicole graduated from California College of the Arts in 2011 and has collaborated with cultural and community focused organizations including Her Resilience, People of Coloring, and URBAN X INDIGENOUS. In 2016, she co-founded the collaborative artivist group We Rise, whose recent endeavors involve producing a weekly radio hour on 89.3 KPFB. She currently attends the grassroots freedom school Liberation Spring which continues to deepen and support her work as an artist and activist.
Nicole is open to all methods and mediums available to express a concept, from visual work to movement, video to written word. Inspired by genealogy, the body, and memory, she explores themes of identity, destruction and deterioration, permanence versus impermanence, and intersectionality. Her work is driven by the fear of forgetting.
