Natasha Wheat is an artist whose work attempts to understand and interrupt the way that human beings exist together. She is interested in the social hierarchy of space, utopian attempts, and the tension between exclusivity and inclusion. In 2008, Natasha founded Project Grow, a Portland, Oregon based art studio and urban farming project that includes people with mental diversity. Examining bio-politics in relationship to human culture, distribution and control, her work takes the form of constructed situations.

Wheat received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2008. She has exhibited collaboratively and individually at The Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley, CA; Rogaland Kunstsenter, Stavanger, NO; G2, Chicago, IL; Mess Hall, Chicago, IL; and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, where her work can be found in the permanent collection.
