Biography
Lindsay Garcia is a social practice/performance artist and doctoral candidate in
American Studies at William & Mary. Her artwork and scholarship engage with anti-racist,
interspecies, queer, and feminist materialisms. She received a BFA from Rhode Island School of
Design, an MFA from SUNY Purchase, an MA from Sotheby’s Institute of Art, and an MA from
William & Mary. Recently awarded a 2019 W&M Provost Dissertation Fellowship, Garcia’s
dissertation “Reimagining Pestilence: Visual Culture and Anti-Racist Materialist Entanglements
between Humans and Nonhumans” articulates infestation as a form of structural violence against
non-normative bodies. She has exhibited her artwork in far-flung locations and published in
Lateral and Arcadia with more to come.
