About Nekisha Durrett

Nekisha Durrett currently lives and works in Washington, DC where she creates bold and playful large scale installations and public art that aim to make the ordinary enchanting and awe inspiring while summoning subject matter that is often underrepresented or overlooked in visual culture. She earned her BFA at The Cooper Union in New York City and MFA from The University of Michigan School of Art and Design as a Horace H. Rackham Fellow. Durrett has exhibited her work throughout the Washington, DC area and nationally. She is currently a finalist in the National Portrait Gallery’s prestigious Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition and is featured in “The Outwin 2019: American Portraiture Today” exhibition. Recent installations include: “Up ‘til Now”, a freestanding, solar powered sculpture that evokes the history of Washington, DC’s landscape and architecture in Washington’s Golden Triangle neighborhood; “Messages for the City” in collaboration with For Freedoms in Times Square, New York; and a wall mounted public sculpture in the Liberty City community of Miami, Florida made in collaboration with conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas. She is currently in production on numerous projects including a permanent installation on the glass-walled vestibule in the newly renovated Martin Luther King, Jr. Library in Washington. Her “Magnolia Project,” a recent series of magnolia leaves perforated with the names of Black women murdered by police, is featured in the Park Avenue Armory exhibition and archive “100 Years | 100 Women” curated by Deborah Willis.
