Matthew Garcia

Matthew Garcia is Assistant Professor of Art at Kansas State University. 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, digital media, video and land installation. Garcia was a 2016 Creative Capital Awardee. His work has been presented nationally and internationally at venues such as: Ecole Nationale Sup√©rieure des Beaux-Arts (Paris, France), The International Symposium on Electronic Art (2012, 2015), the European Research Network Sociology of the Arts (Vienna, Austria), Balance-Unbalance Festival (Australia & Arizona), Open Engagement (Portland State University), HASTAC (Lima, Peru), The National Hispanic Cultural Center (ABQ,USA), SpaceRE:solutions -IG Bildende Kunst Gallery (Vienna, Austria).
