Krista Caballero Via Zoom

October 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Krista Caballero is an interdisciplinary artist exploring issues of agency, survival, and environmental change in a more-than-human world. Moving freely between traditional and emerging media, her work explores the messy and often surprising encounters between human, ecological, and technological landscapes. In 2010 she created Mapping Meaning, an ongoing project that brings together artists, scientists, and scholars through experimental workshops, exhibitions, and transdisciplinary research. Caballero was selected as a 2017 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow and is now a Smithsonian Research Associate working with the National Museum of Natural History researching the cultural implications of bird species decline. Her work has been presented across the United States, as well as internationally in exhibitions and festivals such as the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) in Dubai and New Mexico; the North American Ornithological Conference; “Paradoxes in Video” at Mohsen Gallery in Tehran; EXTREME. ENVIRONMENTS / RAY2018 Photo Triennale in Germany; and Balance-Unbalance International Festival in Queensland, Australia. Caballero received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University and is currently the Associate Director of the Center for Experimental Humanities (EH) at Bard College.
