biography

Genevieve Gaiser Tremblay is a new media artist based in Bellevue, Washington, USA. Her work pushes the boundaries of digital and networked technology to move the art experience from formalized spaces into the public realm in imaginative ways. Bringing the analog sensibilities of a traditional plein air painter together with that of a 21st Century digital media artist, she employs powerful observation methods that alter and deepen her perspective of the natural world and our relationship to it. She works with a suite of mobile, digital + virtual tools that allow her to capture, process and dematerialize visual/audio material she gathers in the field. Her work is best categorized as ‘Post-Net’…art created via dynamic mobile and virtual interfaces and is presented and shared across multiple traditional, experimental and online platforms.

In 2017, Tremblay co-founded ASKXXI: Arts + Science Knowledge Building and Sharing in the XXI Century, an exchange program fostering US- Chile collaboration in arts, emerging technologies and the ecological sciences. The program was aimed at artists, researchers, explorers, storytellers and conservationists working on critical climate and environmental challenges. Our pilot, ‘Construction of Interdisciplinary Knowledge Art and Science in the XXI Century’, was sponsored by the US Embassy, Chile, and hosted at the Center for Research in Biodiversity and Sustainable Environments (CIBAS) at the Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción. She led a virtual team in the curatorial development of ‘Retícula 2019: Ecology and Art Reimagined for the XXI Century’ in Concepción, Chile, an exhibition connecting relevant lines of research (salmon sustainability, invasive species, red tide, land use, etc…) in both regions, igniting wider societal conversations about ecology, natural and cultural diversity. This art + science initiative sponsored through a US Embassy (Chile) public diplomacy grant led to her current role as Adjunct Art + Science Researcher at the Millennium Institute of Coastal Socio-Ecology (SECOS), a new transdisciplinary initiative of Chile’s Ministry of Science, Technology, Knowledge and Innovation. She serves on an international team of knowledge and solution innovators for coastal sustainability and is focused on community focused frontier collaborations in art + science and technology.

She is a member of SOIL Gallery, a cooperative, experimental art space in Seattle, Washington. Her generative and curatorial work at the intersection of arts, science and technology has been funded through grants from 4Culture, The Rockefeller and Benton Foundations, Helen R. Whiteley Foundation, Oregon Arts Commission, The Ford Foundation, Stillman Drake Fund, Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, Universidad Católica de la Santísima Concepción, the US Embassy, Chile.

Genevieve Gaiser Tremblay was born in Washington, DC.  Genevieve received her BFA (Intermedia) from Carnegie Mellon University and her MFA (Studio for Inter-related Media) from the Massachusetts College of Art.
