Edith Garcia creates site-specific installations and sculptural objects, focusing on the minimal
occurrences that transpire each day while addressing wider contemporaneous issues. Her artwork
has been exhibited throughout North America, Mexico, and Europe, in spaces such as Transmission
Gallery, San Francisco; the Northern Clay Center, Minneapolis; the permanent Sculpture Garden of
the Archie Bray Foundation, Montana; Escuela Nacional de Artes Plasticas in Mexico City; and
Gimpel Fils, London.
Garcia’s drawing and sculptural research practices also inform her curatorial and writing projects,
which include the book Ceramics and the Human Figure (2012) and other online and print journals.
She received her BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, MFA from the California
College of the Arts, and MPhil at the Royal College of Art in London. In 2015-16 Garcia was awarded
the Viola Frey Distinguished Visiting Professorship at the California College of the Arts (CCA).
Currently, she continues to teach CCA and at the University of California, Berkeley.
