Pussy Riot
Nadya Tolokonnikova is a conceptual artist and political activist from Russia
and the founder of the art collective
Pussy Riot, which has been the world’s most prominent art group in recent years and a global symbol of activism. In a
2012 protest that attracted international attention, Nadya was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment following an anti- Putin performance by Pussy Riot. A LennonOno Grant for Peace recipient, Nadya leveraged the attention since her release to advocate for human rights and the freedom of creative expression around the world. She has spoken before the U.S. Congress, British Parliament and European Parliament and given honorary lectures
at Harvard, Cambridge, the Glastonbury music festival and universities and events around the world.
