Nicole Rademacher explores and questions concepts around adoption and reunion through a practice based in imagery and community engagement. Drawing from ethnography and psychology, she considers material such as gesture, space, and object as cultural artifacts and looks at identity construction as it relates to alienation, belonging, and intimacy. Rademacher received her MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts from Alfred University and her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She held an artist residency at La Cité Nationale des Arts and recently received an Artistic Community Engagement Grant from the Rema Hort Mann Foundation. Rademacher has exhibited and screened work worldwide including Transmediale, Harvestworks, LOOP Video Art Festival, 18th Street Arts Center, and at LAX Airport. She is currently pursuing a dual MA in Marriage & Family Therapy with Clinical Art Therapy and lives and works in Los Angeles.
