Greta Liz Anderson is a multidisciplinary artist born and raised in Asunción, Paraguay. She migrated to New York at 15 years old, and currently lives and works in San Francisco.
Her work consists of interactive installations and performance through wearables that challenge and build on various models of social construction. Viewer’s are encouraged to maneuver their bodies to adjust and become one with the sculpture, (or vice versa) by integrating themselves into the works.
She received her BFA from the Fashion Institute of Technology and her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her work has been exhibited and performed at the de Young Museum, SF Mint, a solo show at TechShop SF, as well as public installations and performances throughout galleries and alternative spaces in New York, San Francisco, Art Basel Miami and her home country, Paraguay for a solo show after 13 years of separation.
Greta Liz is currently on her second year as Latinx Fellow at Root Division. She teaches at at the Mission Education Center and at the Berkeley Art Museum.
