Nancy Rivera is a Mexican American visual artist, curator, and arts administrator based in Salt Lake City, UT. As an artist, she works primarily in the fields of photography, video, sculpture, and installation. Her practice is influenced by her dual cultural identity and its effects, such as code-switching, cultural assimilation, and displacement. Her most recent work reflects on her experience as first-generation Mexican American through her own history of migration. She has exhibited nationally in a variety of traditional and non-traditional venues and her work is part of private and public collections. She currently manages the Visual Arts Program at the Utah Division of Arts & Museums and is the Vice-Chair of the Salt Lake Art Design Board.
