Larissa Gilbert grew up in Nevada City, CA where she attended a Waldorf-inspired public school that very much shaped her interest in alternative pedagogies and experiential education. After spending her adolescence in rural communities, Larissa relocated to New York City where she received a BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art. Her work as a writer and artist is largely concerned with cultural and media studies, social practice, storytelling, and the relationship between the individual and society. Her work has been included in exhibitions at EFA Project Space (New York, NY), the Nakanojo Biennale (Shima, Japan), and Anthology Film Archives (New York, NY). Since graduating she has worked as a community-based teaching artist in Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY, as well as with the Oxbow Summer Art Program for the past three years. Larissa is an OS27 Oxbow alumnx.
