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.

She has exhibited at NTU CCA, Singapore; 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 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 writings to 48 Hills, Artforum, CMagazine, Art Practical, Daily Serving, Temporary Art Review, and College Art Association.


I will be researching the relationships between virtual spaces and physical geographies though Augmented Realitiy (AR) games. As the "New World," the history of the United States is one of frontierism, where the unknown or unimagined have historically been considered opportunities for expansion. Likewise, we think of "new media" as having untapped potential for "world building." I am particularly interested in how AR can overlay levels of realities onto place to speculate and give voice to alternative and fantastical narratives. My research will eventually be developed into a site-specific performative artwork.
