Chantal Feitosa is a Brazilian American artist from Queens, New York. Her process shifts between digital media, collage, and social practice in order to question notions of racial bias, beauty standards, and belonging. In her work, she often replicates systems of childhood learning and play through performance or object-making.
Through these systems, she is interested in how language and humor can exist as visual mediums to re-construct historical narratives of marginalization. She received her BFA in Film/Animation/Video from the Rhode Island School of Design with a concentration in Literary Arts & Studies.
Her work has shown at film festivals in the United States such as Vidlings & Tapeheads (Hamtramck, MI) and Scout Film Festival (Stowe, VT). She has been awarded residencies at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center (Snowmass Village, CO) and Residency Unlimited (Brooklyn, New York).
