Amy Cannestra is an emerging interdisciplinary artist from Wisconsin, United States. Being fully immersed in a nomadic lifestyle has allowed her to experience how different cultures live. Interested in found objects and common household items Cannestra uses the body and personal experience as a staring point to challenge the divisive nature of language, politics, and society.
In 2015 Cannestra received her MFA from The University of Wisconsin-Madison. Since then she has exhibited internationally, including the Transart Triennial in Berlin German, AIR Gallery in New York, The Feminist Sex Shoppe in Los Angeles, CA, and The 8th Surreal Salon in Baton Rouge, LA. In August of 2017 Cannestra will once again relocate, this time from Wind Lake, Wisconsin to Grenada in the Caribbean.
