Christina Nafziger

Christina Nafziger is a Chicago-based writer, editor, curator, and critic interested in research-based artistic practices, labor and power, the impact archiving has on memory and identity, and the ways in which location affects identity and art making, particularly in the Midwest. She believes in the unlimited potential of approaching all things with a anti-authoritarian, collaborative mindset. When she is not writing she is reading about cyborgs, dolls, and AI.

Christina holds an MA in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmiths University of London and a BA. in Art History from Herron School of Art & Design. She is currently the Managing Editor at the arts publication and archiving initiative Sixty Inches From Center. She is also the Associate Editor at the contemporary art publication Create! Magazine.

With a decade of experience as an arts writer, Christina’s writing has been published by the Chicago Reader Chicago-Sun Times, Sixty Inches From Center, Create! Magazine, Newcity, Ruckus Journal, and more. She is also co-editor of Sixty Inches From Center’s inaugural book Chicago Artists + Archives Project: Case Studies in Collaboration (2023).
