Jade Ariana Fair is a multidisciplinary artist living in Oakland, CA. She works across the genre of painting, performance, sound, and installation. Her work as an artist extends to arts education with youth and social practice. She has been making art for as long as she can recall as a form of healing, guidance and self-recovery. Her art praxis is both research-based and heavily guided by intuition. She creates what she sees in visions, dreams, and from visceral responses to her study of personal and generational archives. She has performed and exhibited work throughout the Bay Area at SOMArts Cultural Center, Eastside Arts Alliance, Berkeley Museum of Art and Pacific Film Archive, Betti Ono Gallery, San Francisco State University, Stanford University and Pro-Arts Gallery. Her art and writing have been published most recently in Toronto’s The Peak Magazine and Wolfman Books’ New Life Quarterly. In 2017 she was an artist-in-residence at The Center for Afrofuturist Studies in Iowa City, IA. She is a co-founder of The Multivrs is Illumianted, the Bay Area’s Black and Brown Punk Festival, taking place August 9th-12th 2018.
