J. Molina-Garcia (they/them) is a Salvadoran-American media artist, writer, and educator.

A citizen of the Global South and an American Dreamer, J.’s work draws on the politics of immigration, philosophies of madness, and nonwestern esoteric traditions to critique the violence of the Global North. They build assemblages of fiction out of analog media, digital novelties, and written/spoken prose to agitate a queer-trans-of-color resistance, en masse.

They hold an MFA degree in Photography+Extended Media from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), and graduated with dual degrees in Photography and Art History from the University of North Texas. They are an Assistant Professor of Photography and Digital Futures at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.
