CAROLYN GENNARI

Carolyn Gennari (b. 1985) is an interdisciplinary artist working across video, performance, photography, and sculpture. Using the archive as source material, her creative practice is heavily research based and explores how performance and media can generate news ways of thinking about the past. Often beginning her projects within archives and museums, Carolyn traces objects back to present day communities, sites and events, positioning the archive as an active site in which to consider history and its relationship to the contemporaneous. In her work, It is no longer important that original historical events be portrayed as much as the interpretation of those events spun from a process of fragmentation, imitation, and re-imagination. Gennari received her MFA from Stamps School of Art & Design, in 2017 and her MA certificate in Museum Studies in 2018 from the University of Michigan.
