Genevieve Quick is an interdisciplinary artist, arts writer, and critic whose work explores global identity and politics in speculative narratives, technology, and media-based practices. In her sculptures, installations, videos, and performance, her humorous science fiction narratives exaggerate disaporic identity to the intergalactic to address Otherness and displacement.
She has exhibited at the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts, San Francisco; Wattis Institute, San Francisco; Asian Cultural Center, Gwangju, South Korea; Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; Mills College Art Museum, Oakland; [2nd floor projects]; Royal Nonsuch Gallery; and Southern Exposure. Quick has been awarded visual arts residencies at The Headlands Center for the Arts, Recology, MacDowell, Djerassi, the deYoung Museum, and Yaddo. She has received a San Francisco Arts Commission Grant; a Eureka Grant from the Fleishhacker Foundation; a Kala Fellowship; and grants from the Center for Cultural Innovation. Quick has contributed essays and reviews to 48 Hills, Artforum, cmagazine, Art Practical, Daily Serving, Temporary Art Review, and College Art Association.
