Emily M. Getsay

(Em) is a queer and non-binary, conceptual artist, activist, and curator. As a conceptual artist, their pieces stem from ideas that allow an expansion of oneself through a relatable and textual lens. Each lens gestates complications of triggers, misconceptions, and desires. Triggers that never disappear but only increase. Misconceptions that are never-ending. Desires that are never attainable. It is with the exploration of body and mind that we develop meaning for these portions of ourselves. As humans, we are always accepting new information and trying to comprehend how we can apply it to our lives while moving through time and space. Em attempts to bring those ideas and knowledge to the surface to become transferable across cultures and society.
