Jamie Sneider is a visual and performance artist working in New York City, currently earning her MFA in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts. She received her BFA with honors from New York University's Tisch School of Arts at the Experimental Theater Wing.
Much of her work begins from a personal diaristic standpoint, revealing taboos and idiosyncrasies present in daily life. She draws from both pop culture references and personal archives, often recreating objects that were once destroyed or discarded. Sneider's work explores narratives of family, female sexuality and idealizations or perfections of femininity. Through sculpture, performance and video, she examines identity within a public space. The content is both autobiographical and analytical of culture, often with humorous tone.
