Hi, Gabriella


say hello ︎



Cybernetic Sex // Subversive Networks // Poetic Technology


Gabriella Garcia is a writer, performer, and poetic technologist. She is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at NYU's Interactive Telecommunication Program (ITP), where her research focuses on the protection of radical self-expression, networked subcultures, and cybernetic intimacy. In addition to her own research, Gabriella is the current acting Managing Editor of Adjacent, ITP's journal for emergent interactive media. Gabriella is also the curatorial artist-in-residence at The Postcontemporary in Troy, NY, where she is cultivating a run of artists who intend to make work that interacts with the landmarked Woodside Church that houses the residency program.

As a performance artist, Gabriella works to create spaces ruled by vulnerability. She has performed in work curated by New York Restoration Project in partnership with the Brooklyn Academy of Music (LEIMAY), The Watermill Center (LEIMAY), SPRING/BREAK Art Show, MANA Contemporary, and Otion Front Studio. Her work has appeared at CultureHub, Pioneer Works, Museum of Sex, and Secret Project Robot. She is a founding collective member of Brooklyn's experimental performance sanctuary Trevorshaus.
