neu collective is an all-female, lens based, artist collective founded in 2019 in Durham, NC. Neu Collective grew out of conversations between Colleen Pesci and Joy Meyer while waiting tables at the local ramen shop.

neu collective is an artistic, curatorial, and research project which aims to create work collaboratively which interrogates the boundaries of lens based work.

Collaborations are being reconsidered as the members are now bi-coastal. New information to be updated by December 2020.
