Nicole Gervacio is an interdisciplinary artist based in occupied Ohlone territory, Huichin - known as Oakland, California. She is inspired by the body, memory, destruction and deterioration, permanence versus impermanence and is driven by the fear of forgetting. She received her BFA at California College of the Arts in 2011 and has exhibited visual work throughout the bay. In 2016, she became involved in the grassroots adult freedom school Liberation Spring and co-founded the collaborative cultural production collective We Rise. Both continue to deepen and support her work as an artist, activist, and culture producer.
