Nicole Rademacher is an artist and adoptee. She is also a trainee in Marriage and Family Therapy & Clinical Art Therapy. The influence of her adoption and reunion (with her biological family) feature prominently in her studio practice where she explores concepts of intimacy, identity, and belonging through visual work as well as in community engagement works. Rademacher holds an MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts from Alfred University and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Selected honors include an artist residency at La Cité Nationale des Arts in 2010, receiving an Artistic Community Engagement Grant from the Rema Hort Mann Foundation in 2016 and a Veridian Community Engagement Fellowship Award in 2017, and being awarded the Maxine B Junge Scholarship to begin her studies in art therapy in 2018. Rademacher has exhibited and screened work worldwide including Transmediale, Harvestworks, LOOP Video Art Festival, 18th Street Arts Center, and at LAX Airport.
