Carla Gannis

Visual storyteller


Carla Gannis identifies as a visual storyteller. With the use of 21st Century representational technologies she narrates through a digital looking glass where reflections on power, sexuality, marginalization, and agency emerge. She is fascinated by digital semiotics and the situation of identity in the blurring contexts of physical and virtual.

Since 2003 Gannis’s work has appeared in over 20 solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions. Features on her work have appeared in ARTnews, The Creators Project, The Huffington Post, Wired, Buzzfeed, Hyperallergic, Art F City, Art Critical, The New York Times and The LA Times, among others.

Gannis has participated on numerous panels regarding intersections in art and technology including “Let’s Get Digital” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and “Cogency in the Imaginarium” at Cooper Union. In 2015 her speculative fiction was included in Devouring The Green: fear of a human planet: a cyborg / eco poetry anthology, published by Jaded Ibis Press.
