Bianca Nozaki-Nasser is an artist, designer, and educator based in Los Angeles.
Bianca uses installation, audio, experimental film, graphics, textiles, and object-making to trace the intricacies of material culture, memory, and liberatory futures. As a queer Syrian-Lebanese-Japanese-American, Muslim, her research and creative practice often engages contested histories, critical geographies, and the capacity of objects to encapsulate power, memory, pain, and possibility.
She is currently an assistant professor at the ArtCenter of College and Design where she teaches interdisciplinary studios and intensives on design, futurism, and political education. She has guest lectured at Duke, Harvard, CUNY, The New School, the University of San Francisco, OTIS, and elsewhere. She has held artist residencies in Los Angeles and New York, and has collaborated with a variety of institutions and organizations including Asian American Documentary Network, The California Endowment, Sundance, and UNICEF Innovation.
Previously, Bianca spent five years as the Creative & Strategy Director at a national digital-first Asian American advocacy organization, where she used technology and creative media to mobilize over 170,000 young Asian Americans around racial justice. She also co-founded a mobile-first platform for patient-generated health data management and developed a cultural trend forecasting tool while working as a cultural strategist for a global advertising agency, TBWACHIATDAY LA.
Bianca completed her MFA in Media Design Practices at the ArtCenter College of Design in 2018, and her BA in Communication from The University of Southern California. Bianca is also a member of the Level Ground LA artist collective as well as a 200 HR certifited yoga teacher.
