Aida Ramirez is a mixed media who currently lives and works in Chicago, IL. She is currently completing her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Though she received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), in Printmaking with a concentration in Book Arts, her practice often shifts between printed media, performance, writing, and work-shoping. Much of Ramirez’s work is centered around ideas of collaboration, community, and the cultural identities within groups. Recently, Ramirez and her partner, Chas Druin, founded Fugitive Collective and have been producing, organizing, and writing inspired by concepts such as running away, survival, and sustainable communal living.
