Edith Garcia’s work draws you into an alluring world of installation and sculpture. She focuses on the unique individual experiences throughout our lifetimes, the minimal occurrences that transpire each day and grafts them into site-specific installations and objects. Her body of work has been exhibited throughout Europe, North America and Mexico in spaces such as Gimpel Fils, London, Transmission Gallery, San Francisco and Tampa Museum of Art, Florida.
Garcia is strongly engaged in the critical research of drawing and sculpture with curatorial projects, publishing and creating works that reflect this passion. Garcia received her BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, MFA from the California College of the Arts (and Crafts) and MPhil at the Royal College of Art in London. She published Ceramics and the Human Figure released worldwide by A&C Black Visual Arts (Bloomsbury) and is a contributing author to numerous online and print journals.
Recently, Garcia was awarded the Viola Frey Distinguished Visiting Professorship at the California College of the Arts and is currently a Professor at the California College of the Arts and University of California, Berkeley.
