Bio

As an interdisciplinary artist, Matt Garcia maintains an engaged practice exploring the intersection of new media, ecology and community. Garcia's research practice investigates ecology, its relationship to knowledge systems and how media can connect communities to a reclaiming or re-imagining of a lost epistemology. Garcia's art and research practice utilize a spectrum of expression tools: performance, photo, and media land installation. Garcia was a 2016 Creative Capital Awardee. His work has been presented nationally and internationally at venues such as: Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts (Paris, France), Santa Barabara Museum of Contemporary Art The International Symposium on Electronic Art (2012, 2015), Balance-Unbalance Festival (Australia & Arizona), Open Engagement, HASTAC (Lima, Peru), The National Hispanic Cultural Center (ABQ, USA).
