BIO
Carla Gannis is an artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She holds an MFA in painting from Boston University and is the recipient of several awards, including a 2005 New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Grant in Computer Arts. She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Most recently she collaborated with poet Justin Petropoulos on a transmedia book, installation and net art project entitled <legend> <legend> (Jaded Ibis Press and Transfer Gallery, 2013). She is Assistant Chair of The Department of Digital Arts at Pratt Institute.

Gannis's work examines the narrativity of 21st century representational technologies and questions the hybrid nature of identity, where virtual and real embodiments of self diverge and intersect. She feels akin to past and contemporary artists and writers who uncannily deconstruct rigid notions of reality and perception.

Selective Affinities @ Pablo's Birthday, Oct 15, 4pm


Selective Affinities: a panel discussion, in conjunction with the group
exhibition Multiple Partners, about community, gender, and connectivities in
the New York art world.
Panelists include: Lilly Wei, Brian Sholis, Michael Sellinger, Lea Rekow,
Anat Ebgi, Phong Bui Moderated by: Carla Gannis.
Dialogue: Recently The New York art world has taken some harsh criticism
recently for being too market driven to represent the truly best-A mercenary
and soulless picture takes form, where money, conformity, and power
obfuscate conviction, originality, and integrity. It can be easy to overlook
the artists, writers, curators, and gallerists in New York whose
contributions help form a more inspiring and vital scenario. Many of these
individuals support the mutual success of their peers, sharing resources and
information; write insightful and judicious analysis; curate provocative and
challenging shows; and operate galleries and art spaces that provide
alternative perspectives to the status quo.
A Q&A open to panelists and participating artists of "Multiple Partners"
will follow the panel discussion Where & when: Pablo's Birthday, 84 Franklin
St, (between Church and Broadway), NYC, Free, 4:00 pm

of
connections a female artist can find with one and one and one and
one
of her male artist contemporaries. Sociological or biological
factors
may influence women to express themselves differently from men, but
other
far-ranging factors, from our shared humanity to similar tastes in
literature,
music, and science, produce commonalities and linkages in our
creative
output. Without expectations for a conclusive sum total, this show
explores
the possibility that artists of both genders can look to the same
