Connie Bakshi is an artist based in Los Angeles, trained as a classical pianist and biomedical engineer. She is descended from the ancestral shamans of Taiwan. Working predominantly with artificial intelligence, she probes postcolonial narratives that emerge on the boundaries between the synthetic and organic, material and immaterial, and human and nonhuman. Her works often re-code language, lore, and ritual to unfold the binaries of colonial canon.
Her accolades include the Red Dot: Best of the Best Award for Concept Design and the International Takifuji Arts Award. She has spoken and exhibited internationally, including at Feral File, FEMGEN at Art Basel Miami, VellumLA, EPOCH Gallery, MoCDA, NFCastle, The NFT Gallery in London and NYC, and SaloneSatellite in Milan.
Her work and practice have been covered by Outland and Right Click Save. An alumna of the VerticalCrypto Art Residency and NEW INC, the New Museum’s incubator for art, technology, and design, she is currently a resident artist at wildxyz.
Bakshi holds degrees from Duke University and ArtCenter College of Design.
