Christina Nafziger is an art critic, editor, curator, and art historian based in Chicago (occupied land of Ohklahomo, Potawatomi, Ojibwe, and Odawa people). Earning an M.A. in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmiths University of London, her research focuses on the effect photo collections and archiving have on memory and identity and the potential capacity these collections have in altering and editing future histories.
She is Associate Editor at Create! Magazine and Managing Editor at Sixty Inches From Center, a nonprofit arts publication and archiving initiative whose work promotes and supports the arts and cultural work being done in communities that have historically been left out mainstream narratives. Working with a collaborative approach to her editorial work, Nafziger's recent writing investigates the work of artists with research-based practices and how they engage with archives. Her writing can be found elsewhere at Newcity, Feature Shoot, and THE SEEN: Chicago's International Online Journal for Contemporary & Modern Art. She has also contributed to Lumpen Magazine's 'Artists Run Chicago' issue, and the publication Exhibitions on the Cusp (2018), published by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
