About me

I am Amy Cannestra, a contemporary artist who uses performance, multi-media installation, and drawing to navigate the journey of body acceptance, self-love, and the intricate dance between external influences and internal emotions.

I received my BFA in Communication Design from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in 2006 and my MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. Since then I have been performing and exhibiting internationally, participating in events such as the 2016 TransArt Triennial in Germany, ChaShaMa pop-up at the One World Trade Center in New York City, the 2017 TRIO: Biennial in Rio de Janeiro, and, most notably, the 58th Venice Biennial in the Grenada Pavilion. In January of 2024 I exhibited two new bodies of work at the Bliss Gallery in Waukesha, WI and the Trout Museum of Art in Appleton, WI.

Alongside my studio practice, I am one-third of SPOOKY BOOBS, a feminist art collaboration with artists J. Myszka Lewis, and Maggie Snyder. I also am a graphic designer at the Milwaukee Art Museum, an aunt, and a dog mom.

Macaroni & Ed

These little love bugs are Macaroni (white and brown) and her little brother Ed (black and brown). Both pups were rescued and have been thriving ever since. Macaroni pretends she wants to help you install your work, then just sits on your lap and snuggles, so beware of those puppy dog eyes (unless you are looking to procrastinate). Ed (named after the Hyena in The Lion King) is a bundle of energy and will steal your snacks. Watch out!
