Sunita Prasad is a New York City based artist. Her projects draw from her research on social histories and multiple publics, while inserting heightened fictional elements or hyperbolized versions back into those histories and communities online and in public space. She has a special interest in works that are activated live and in physical touch. Sunita is originally from Syracuse NY and received a BFA in Film & TV from New York University and an MFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her works have been shown in galleries, festivals, and performance venues internationally.
Sunita was a member of the now-defunct radical cultural collective Red Channels, with whom she invaded the Paris Commune restaurant in New York City, delivered giant "radioactive" paper cranes to the General Electric corporation, and gave walking tours of New York on topics such as the prisons in Manhattan and wildcat strikes in local history. She has also collaborated with Ecocide Project, Laryssa Husiak, Voider, and others.
