Krista Caballero


Krista Caballero is an interdisciplinary artist exploring issues of agency, survival, and environmental change in a more-than- human world. Moving freely between emerging media and traditional craft, her work creates situations for encountering alternative systems 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 and long-term sustainability 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 International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) in Dubai, Futurescapes Symposium in Trondheim, Norway, “Paradoxes in Video” at Mohsen Gallery in Tehran, and Balance-Unbalance International Festival in Queensland, Australia. Birding the Future, a collaborative project with sound artist Frank Ekeberg, was recently awarded a Norwegian Arts Council grant.
