Guest Info
  • Caroline Garcia

    Caroline Garcia works across live performance and video through a hybridised aesthetic of cross-cultural dance, ritual practice, new media, and the sampling of popular culture and colonial imagery. She is concerned with forgotten choreographies, alternate ways of viewing images of the past that eschew classical myths, and the mimetic capacities of the Filipina. Garcia has presented with Underbelly Arts Festival (Sydney), Channels (Melbourne), The Australian Video Art Festival (Melbourne), Proximity Festival (Perth), Junction Arts Festival (Launceston), MCA ARTBAR (Sydney), and PACT Centre for Emerging Artists (Perth). She has exhibited at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (Melbourne), The Centre of Contemporary Photography (Melbourne), Firstdraft (Sydney), The Substation (Melbourne), and Blacktown Arts Centre (Sydney), among other institutions.
