Farieda Nazier is a Johannesburg-based artist, researcher and educator whose practice explores the psychological intricacies embedded within a range of pertinent socio-political themes. She uses provocative sculptural installations to create opportunities for further exploration into the dialogical tensions between politics, artist, practice, product and education.

She has successfully co-curated and participated in a number of art exhibitions, both locally and abroad. Most recently Tension Torsion: 20 Years On hosted by the Ithuba Arts Gallery in Johannesburg (2014), was a show of sculptural installations curated by Nazier. It included new works by Nazier, Gordon Froud, Avitha Sooful and Oupa V Mokwena. At the end of 2012, Nazier and Mocke J Van Veuren were selected as finalist in the MTN New Contemporary Awards 2012.
