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 creates situations for encountering alternative methods of knowing and perceiving. In 2010 she created Mapping Meaning, an ongoing project that brings together artists, scientists and scholars to explore issues of ecological complexity through experimental workshops, exhibitions, and transdisciplinary research.
Caballero received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University and in 2009 attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her work has been presented across the United States as well as internationally in exhibitions and festivals such as the 2014 International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) in Dubai, “Paradoxes in Video” at Mohsen Gallery in Tehran, and the 2013 Balance-Unbalance International Festival in Queensland, Australia. Caballero was recently selected as a 2017-18 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow to work with scholars at the National Museum of Natural History researching cultural implications of bird species decline for a collaborative project with Frank Ekeberg, Birding the Future.
