Log in to post comments Academic Area Printmaking and Book Arts Degree MFA Year Graduated 2017 Social https://www.instagram.com/girlwiththebangs/ Website kaleenastasiak.com I am an interdisciplinary artist who uses an assortment of haptic media such as printmaking, ceramics, textiles, and wood furniture to explore methods of the consumption of history. My material investigations question the way individual, regional, and national identities are constructed in order to understand the formulation of collective myths, their relevance to the present, and ways to productively disrupt them. Recent shows include Clues and Scientific Inquiry curated by Victoria Camblin at the Marcia Wood Gallery in Atlanta, GA, Ancient Art Objects curated by Katie Geha at Whitespace in Atlanta, GA, and Give Them the Slip curated by Wendy Vogel and presented by Regina Rex at bitforms Gallery in New York, NY. I received my BFA in Printmaking from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Ontario in 2008 and I recently graduated with my MFA in Printmaking from UGA in 2018. While in graduate school, I started a feminist art collective and women's wrestling league called the South East Women Wrestlers. Currently I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in Printmaking at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama.
