Krista Caballero is an interdisciplinary artist exploring issues of agency, survival, and environmental change. 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. She has also been awarded residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, ME; Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, MD; and Caldera Arts, OR. Her artwork has been presented nationally and internationally in exhibitions and festivals such as the International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA); the North American Ornithological Conference; “Paradoxes in Video” at Mohsen Gallery in Tehran; EXTREME. ENVIRONMENTS / RAY2018 Photo Triennale in Germany; Balance-Unbalance International Festival in Queensland, Australia; “A New We” at Kunsthall Trondheim in Norway; Foggy Bottom Outdoor Sculpture Biennial, Washington D.C.; and the Association for Computers and the Humanities. Caballero received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University and is currently the Co-Director of the Center for Experimental Humanities (EH) and Artist in Residence at Bard College in New York.
