Krista Caballero

Washington D.C.

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 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, attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2009, and was recently selected as a 2017 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellow. 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), “Paradoxes in Video” at Mohsen Gallery in Tehran, and Balance-Unbalance International Festival in Queensland, Australia. 

Caballero is currently the Associate Director of the Design Cultures & Creativity program at the University of Maryland in College Park. This honors program brings together students from all majors to explore emerging technologies and their impact upon the world.
