Yanique Norman

Yanique Norman is an Atlanta-based artist whose multimedia practice explores themes of alienation, identity, and Black embodiment operating under a mode of critique called Black fungibility. Norman defines Black fungibility as “an alternate ideological dream model” that tethers Black experience with scientific and technological actions of organic transmutation, multiplicity, reproduction, and shapeshifting through installation, sound, video, sculpture, and drawings. Born in Spanish Town, Jamaica, Norman migrated to the United States at age twelve. She completed her studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA, 2018) and Georgia State University (BFA, 2014). Norman was recently awarded the United States Artists Relief Grant (2021); Artadia Award: Atlanta (2020); National Museum of Women in the Arts Relief Grant (2020); Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant (2019) and Susan Antinori Visual Artist Grant (2019). Her work can be found in the public collections of the High Museum of Art, Clark Atlanta University Art Museum and Hammonds House Museum. In addition, she currently teaches at both her alma maters, Georgia State University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
