Always choosing media that can be widely disseminated, Rachael Romero, M.A. has a diverse body of work, which spans award-winning narrative film; mass installation; photography; street posters; hand-made, print and digital media. Her work has recently featured at The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Australian National Museum, Canberra; and shown at MOCA, LA. She is presently at work on The Magdalene Inferno about the experience and results of childhood entrapment and slavery in an Australian Magdalene Laundry. Throughout, and entwined with her art career, Romero has led art workshops for nuero-diverse adults who have been homeless at Pathways to Housing in NYC; inner-city children in the community centers of the NY Housing Authority and taught at NYU's experimental Advanced Learning Lab for teens on the Autistic spectrum. From "the trenches," she observes how sustained involvement with creative process can result in the transfiguration of personal and collective suffering -- transforming pain into the virtual power of creative becoming.
Romero's artists’ books, prints and paintings are in collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK; The Whitney, NYC, The Cooper Hewitt, NYC, The Oalkland Museum, CA; Museum of Modern Art, New York City;
Romero holds a double M.A. in Studio Art and Art Education (with an emphasis on work with special populations) from Antioch University .
