Krissy Talking Pictures is a video art organization I founded in 2019 that makes space and opportunities for queer artists without access to mainstream institutions. Krissy has organized exhibitions, installations, lectures, performances, and events across Philadelphia.
Cherry Nin is a Philadelphia-based interdisciplinary artist working with video, writing, performance, and sound. Utilizing what they have available—friends as actors, bedroom as set—Nin employs non-traditional modalities of writing, producing, and editing to create neurotic characters with fraught inner realities, often portraying effects of societal violence and repression on human relationships, dreams, and the subconscious. Disjointed, hyper-real worlds emerge, where a host of wicked realities lie bubbling just below a cracked surface.
Alongside their art practice, Cherry is an organizer. They are the founder of Krissy Talking Pictures (KTP), a video art organization in Philadelphia that makes space for queer artists who have limited or no access to mainstream institutions. Through their work with KTP Nin has curated installations, exhibitions, and performances at underground spaces throughout Philadelphia and has lectured at The Wexner Center for the Arts, Haverford College, and University of Oxford (UK). They are a recipient of the Leeway Foundation's Art & Change Grant (2020), the Philadelphia Independent Media Fund (2021), a past artist in residence at Outpost Artist Resources in Queens, NY and the Wexner Center for the Arts.
