Sondra Perry is an American media artist whose work investigates the role of digital technology in the systematic oppression of Black identity. Perry creates videos and installations that propel the message that an unmediated understanding of black identity is not a possibility. Throughout her varied pieces a focus on the ways blackness influences technology and image-making stands alongside dissections of black American ceremony and ritual. Perry received a BFA from Alfred University in 2012 and an MFA from Columbia University in 2015. She has participated in residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston. Her work has been exhibited at MoMA PS1 as part of Greater New York and The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Perry had her first institutional solo show at The Kitchen in 2016 entitled Resident Evil. More information can be found at
