GETSAY – they/them
GETSAY is a Queer and non-binary Conceptual Artist, Activist, and Curator. They currently reside in Atlanta, Georgia, where they are a Studio Art: Focus in Photography MFA Candidate at Georgia State University (graduating 2023) and a Teaching Assistant of Photography and Studio Art. Their work stems from ideas that expand oneself through a relatable and textual lens—ultimately exploring the liminal space between perception and reality to create work that translates—bringing those ideas and knowledge to the surface and becoming transferable across cultures and society. GETSAY has exhibited and performed internationally, with recent performances and solo exhibitions at the Burren College of Art and Design, Ct. Claire Ireland (2022) and The Ernest G. Welch School of Art and Design (2022). In addition to their solo experience, their work has been a part of exhibitions at Emory University, The Atlanta Contemporary, Gallery 874, and many more. GETSAY has curated international exhibitions at the Center for Civil and Human Rights, Sycamore Place Gallery, and many other locations and featured in publications such as ARTS ATL, Georgia Voice, Wussy Magazine, and The CNN Freedom Project, and others. GETSAY is formerly the President of the Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia (2017 to 2020) and the Founder and Chair of the LGBTQIA + Caucus of the National Women’s Caucus for Art.
