Nat Castañeda is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Castañeda works primarily in video and collage, with an emphasis on tactile intimacy with her materials remaining an important aspect of all her projects. Common issues in Castañeda’s work are the role of technology within personal narratives and the permanence of the historical record.
She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts and has shown at venues such as El Museo del Barrio and Electronic Arts Intermix. In addition to her art practice, Castañeda works at The Associated Press where she curates AP's photographic archive of historical and contemporary photojournalism. Castañeda’s photography has appeared in the New York Times, U.S. News & World Report and USA Today.
