Biography

Cheryl Mukherji is a visual artist and writer currently living and working in Brooklyn, New York. She graduated with an MFA in Advanced Photographic Studies from the International Center of Photography-Bard College, New York in 2020. Mukherji has been a recipient of the ICP Director’s Fellowship for the years 2018-2020.

In her current work, Mukherji explores the idea of origin and inheritance, which is embedded in the figure of her mother and her presence in the family album. It deals with memory, personal history, trans-generational trauma, and how they inform identity. Mukherji primarily works with photography, text, and video. Mukherji has been the recent recipient of Capture Photography Festival’s Writing Prize, Brooklyn Museum’s #Your2020Portrait award, South Asian Arts Resiliency Fund (SAARF), Firecracker Photography Grant, and was nominated for the inaugural Next Step Award.
