Artadia Awardee

Caroline Garcia is an interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. She is a commissioned OPEN CALL 2021 artist at The Shed and has presented work at Spring/Break Art Fair, Olsen Gruin Gallery, Movement Research at Judson Church, Smack Mellon, Creative Time Summit X, A.I.R. Biennale, The Vera List Center, and Hesse Flatow; as well as internationally at The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Manila Biennale, and Art Central Hong Kong. She has been in residence at the EMPAC, MASS MoCA, ISCP, and is currently a Tech Resident at Pioneer Works.

Caroline works across performance, video, and installation through a hybridized aesthetic of cross-cultural movement, embodied research, and new media. Her practice traverses a highly personalized aggregation of distinct systems that encompass green screening (live and in post production), botany, robotics, poetry, and mixed realities (AR & VR). Through a humorous and playful aesthetic that digitally samples popular culture and colonial imagery, she critically re-appropriate problematic narratives of cultural representation, further complicating them through cultural cannibalism.
