Sunita Prasad is a Brooklyn-based film, video, and performance artist. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including solo shows and screenings at Centre Clark in Montreal, Homesession in Barcelona, Momenta Art in New York, and Vox Populi in Philadelphia. She has participated in group shows at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Torino Performance Art in Turin, Stadtgalerie Bern, Smack Mellon in New York City, and Three Walls in Chicago.

Production Fund, as well as residencies at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Contemporary Artists Center in Troy NY, and TAJ & SKE Projects in Bangalore.
Sunita’s works often employ methods of hybridization between documentary and fiction. These methods have included the insertion of hyperbolic acts of intimacy into public space, using drag personas to intervene in a breast-implant crowdfunding site, and the creation of “misgendered” re-enactments of interview transcripts. Sunita’s projects span a wide variety of subjects, landing frequently on issues of gender, identity, and the history of social movements.
