Edith Garcia (El Granada, CA) has long embraced unconventional and experimental projects. Within her research and creative productions, she addresses the ideas of transience, the status of the object in contemporary art and theory, and the consciousness of our contemporaneity as a society. Her body of work has been exhibited throughout North America, Mexico, and Europe and has been the recipient of national and international awards. She has participated in various artist residencies, and is now Distinguished Visiting Professor at the California College of the Arts (Oakland, CA). She has been featured in solo, touring, and group exhibitions at national and international venues such as the Royal College of Art (London, UK), Gimpel Fils, (London, UK), British Ceramics Biennial, (Stoke- on-Trent, UK), Baltimore Clayworks (Baltimore, MD), Northern Clay Center (Minneapolis, MN), Lillstreet Art Center (Chicago, IL), Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts (Gatlinburg, TN), Transmission Gallery (Oakland, CA), and Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
Garcia continues to be actively engaged in critical research on the convergence of contemporary art, technologies, education, and design with curatorial projects, publishing, and the realization of creative productions.
