Gabie Strong is a Southern California artist and musician exploring spatial constructions of degeneration, drone and decay as a means to improvise new arrangements of self-reflexive meaning. Strong uses sound performance, radio broadcasting, environmental installation and video as a mediums for experimentation. Her work is a feminist exploration of the affect from living in the spatial disorganization of urban, everyday life. She often collaborates with other artists, musicians and poets to create work that embodies the difference of lived experience in a specific time and place.
Her work has been presented at The Hammer Museum, Current LA: KPARK, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Los Angeles Contemporary Archive, Pasadena Armory Center for the Arts, Knowledges at Mount Wilson Observatory, Pitzer College Art Galleries, University Art Gallery UC Irvine, LAXArt, Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair, Human Resources, High Desert Test Sites, LACMA, and the MAK Center for Art and Architecture. In late 2016, Strong released two LPs of experimental music on her feminist-oriented label Crystalline Morphologies.
