Carrie Sieh (b.1978, Los Angeles, CA) is an interdisciplinary artist and social justice advocate living and working in Miami, Florida. Her practice is anchored in cultural, geographic, and economic histories; theories of mind; geoscience; activist movements; personal narrative; and the ways in which knowledge finds material expression. Her work addresses intertwined realities of environmental destruction, economic exploitation, gendered labor, and intergenerational trauma. She is also the founder of Zero Waste Miami, a project dedicated to climate adaptation, environmental justice, and degrowth.
Sieh received a BA (Painting and Photography) from University of California at Santa Cruz, and a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University, CA. Her work has been exhibited at Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, Art & History Museums of Maitland, Miami International Airport, Coral Gables Museum, Baker Museum, and Art & Culture Center of Hollywood, among others.
