Past Resident2020: The Dr. K. David G. Edwards & Margery Edwards Charitable Giving Fund, Create NSW, Embassy of Australia in Washington, DC
Caroline Garcia is an interdisciplinary artist working across live performance and video through a hybridized aesthetic of cross-cultural dance, ritual practice, and new media. Her work performances and video installations traverse a highly personalized aggregation of distinct systems that encompass live-green screening, botany, robotics, poetry, and virtual reality. Her most recent body of work serves to function as a reparative measure to contend with personal loss and the diasporic and post-colonial grief that accompanies it.

Charisse Pearlina Weston
Charisse Pearlina Weston’s creative work emerges from deep material investigations of poetics and the autobiographical. She utilizes glass to conceptually embody both the everyday risk of anti-black violence and the precocity and malleability of blackness in the face of this violence. She deploys language and the autobiographical to examine the delicate intimacies and reticent poetics underlying black life. She reuses and re-articulates materials from past installations to formulate the next to represent meaning’s capacity to shatter.
