Amy Franceschini is an artist and educator working with notions of community,
sustainable systems, and play. Her work manifests “on” and “offline” in
the form of dynamic websites, installations, open-access
laboratories, and educational formats that
collectively question the cultural, social and economic systems we live in. In 1995 she founded Futurefarmers, an artist collective and design studio, which hosts an internationally recognized artist-in-residence program.
Franceschini has worked collaboratively and individually on interdisciplinary projects that have been featured in group and solo exhibitions including the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York; Jack Hanley Gallery, San Francisco, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Amy is currently teaching at Stanford University, CCA and the San Francisco Art Institute.
