Erin Mallea


Erin Mallea is a multidisciplinary artist exploring particular microcosms as entry points into larger social and environmental conditions. She works in sculpture, video, photography and print publications to scrutinize systems of producing relationships to land, place and time. Across media, her process is grounded in place-based research and partnerships with individuals and organizations outside of traditional art spaces: biologists, historians, family, community radio and more.

Erin has exhibited at galleries, museums and DIY spaces nationally and internationally, including the Boise Art Museum (Boise, ID), A.I.R. Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), Laband Art Gallery (Los Angeles), Miller ICA (Pittsburgh), and Melanie Flood Projects (Portland, OR) among others. She received a BA in Studio Art and Art History from Loyola Marymount University in 2012 and a MFA in Visual Art from Carnegie Mellon University in 2019.
