Duke University

Nzinga Simmons is an independent curator and art history scholar based in Durham, North Carolina. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Art, Art History, and Visual Studies at Duke University. Simmons’ research examines black contemporary artists working in New Media; that is, making use of the internet, non-fungible tokens (NFT), artificial intelligence (AI), and other forms of digital technologies in their practice. Her work considers how these artists refuse the assumed neutrality of technological systems and conceptualize the digital realm as a context uniquely primed for the assertion of black futurity. Amid an influx contemporary discourse examining technology’s pernicious influence, Simmons’ research opens new ways of conceptualizing technology as a tool for marginalized communities to assert their agency and subjectivity in the digital realm and beyond. Prior to graduate studies, Simmons was awarded the Tina Dunkley Curatorial Fellowship in American Art and served in the curatorial departments at the Clark Atlanta University Art Museum, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Zuckerman Museum of Art in Kennesaw, Georgia.
