1612 USA NY Portraits Vitoria Hadba 0158.jpg



Vitoria Hadba is Carioca by birth and a Brooklynite by heart. She was born in a hot rainy day in 1988. From an early age she was already the creative type, or the weirdo as they would call her in school.  Before fully dedicating to art and art history, Hadba worked in film for way longer then she should have. During her time as a set dresser, Hadba learned a lot about materials and their usages. She has a tendency to think three-dimensionally, which ultimately approximated her to sculpture. As a result of her fascination for the human body, she wrote her praised thesis on Ana Mendieta and the deformed female body. After studying at UNIRIO (RJ), Central Saint Martins (London), and Pratt Institute (NY), she is ready for enrolling in a Doctorate program. Hadba is an official nerd, a passionate feminist, a hoarder, and a dog lover.

Vitoria Hadba is a feminist artist, art historian, and set designer. She holds a BFA in Art History from Pratt Institute, where she graduated with highest honors. She is currently an art history graduatestudent at Hunter College. Additionally, she studied at Central Saint Martin in London, and at UNIRIO in Rio de Janeiro. Before moving to New York, she worked extensively in film and theatre in Brazil. Inthe last few years, she has been an active participant in fundraising campaigns for major art institutions, while also exhibiting her work in group shows throughout the city. At present, Vitoria is involved inresearching feminist artists working with performance in 1980s Brazil. She spends her free time devouring art books at NYPL.
