Lindsay Garcia is a socially engaged feminist artist who works in video, performance, social practice, poetry, and scholarly intervention. Her artwork and scholarship engage with anti-racist, interspecies, queer, and feminist materialisms. Recently awarded a 2019 W&M Provost Dissertation Fellowship, Garcia is a doctoral candidate in American Studies at the College of William & Mary. Her dissertation “Pest-humanism: Race, Nation, and Sexuality in Multi-species Entanglements” articulates infestation as a form of structural violence against non-normative bodies and amplifies artist projects that subvert these pest-related racisms, xenophobias, and anti-LGBTQI violences. She received a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design (Sculpture), an MFA from SUNY Purchase (Visual Arts), an MA from Sotheby’s Institute of Art (Contemporary Art), and an MA from William & Mary (American Studies). She has exhibited her artwork from coast to coast and published in Lateral and Arcadia with forthcoming publications on their way.
