About the Artist
Tere Garcia is a multidisciplinary artist originally from Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico, and is based in Houston. She graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art Photography and Digital Media. She recently graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City with a Masters of Fine Arts Photography. Her art practice has been an important tool to express, heal, and form narratives about her identity and the places where she exists. Garcia has been traveling and working along the United States and Mexico border, confronting these boundaries that demolish and hinder unity. She intends to create and change the way these landscapes have been advertised, utilized, and exploited to generate hate, displacement, and separation for humanity. Her interventions represent a peaceful gesture to start a conversation with society to unify us rather than separates us.
