Nyugen E. Smith is a Caribbean-American interdisciplinary artist and educator who lives and works in Jersey City, N.J.  His practice consists of found object sculpture, installation, writing, video and performance and is influenced by the conflation of African cultural practices and the remnants of European colonial rule in the black diaspora. He holds an M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and in 2016 won a two-year Leonore Annenberg Fellowship in the Performing and Visual Arts, with which he conducted fieldwork in the Caribbean on mythical and historical figures from Caribbean and American literature.
