About // CV

Rebecca Marimutu is an interdisciplinary artist and photographer working to reimagine the practice of portraiture. Born and raised in New York City and informed by critical race theory and contemporary discussions around the dimensionality of the photograph, she works by concealing, obscuring, and protecting that which lies within the frame. Her work explores themes of self, identity, and material tactility through paper sculpture, collage, and audio-visual abstraction. She received her MFA degree in Photographic and Electronic Media at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2020, and her BS in Mathematics and Economics from the University of Albany with a minor in Studio Art.

She is currently an adjunct professor at Towson, MICA and Loyola University.

Her work has been shown at the Waller Gallery, ICA Baltimore, and Eubie Blake Cultural Center in Baltimore MD
