HEOP Parsons Photo Student Nicole Vega Featured On Intern-Mag.com!

Nicole’s work often touches on themes of identity, primarily sexuality, gender and race. As a native New Yorker and a first generation American Dominican, her conceptual work often speaks about the issues she has been confronted with her entire life. “There’s been this new focus on young, ‘feminist’ female artists in the art and fashion worlds, but just like in the second-wave movement, the voices of women of color or lower classes are excluded and not paid attention to” she tells us. “I want to make work for our generation of ‘interns’ and the ones to come that transcends this institutional practice and expands the discourse on issues that affect me and my peers”.
