Rob Fatal is a video, photo and performance artist concerned with the Queer archive and exploring decolonial aesthetics. Fatal has been awarded grants by the Berkeley Film Foundation, Queer Cultural Center and SOMArts Cultural Center. Fatal’s work has been screened internationally at the British Film Institute Flare Festival, Fringe! Queer Film & Art Festival in London, Rio de Janeiro Gender and Sexuality Film Festival, Frameline SF LGBTQ Film Festival, Galeria de la Raza San Francisco, Toronto Queer Film Festival, Geneva LGBT Film Festival and First Nations Film Festival in Chicago. As a Native American, Latinx and queer artist, Fatal finds community and culture to be their greatest artistic inspiration. To create with the collective minds of unique individuals is a practice that brings to them a great spiritual catharsis; a feeling of joy and power tied to the realization of what people working together can accomplish when in harmony: a home, a shared reality, justice, and healing.
