Kristin Casaletto

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

Kristin Casaletto’s art explores socio-political challenges facing the United States in its role as one of the last standing super powers. Her work presents nuanced, relevant scrutiny of the precariousness of contemporary American life. Casaletto uses drawing, painting, printmaking, and at times sound, sculpture, video, monumental scale, and collaborations to confront issues of class, race, gender, power imbalance, and conscience that stem from her position within a working-class, mixed-race family. Casaletto exhibits nationally and internationally and has shown with such artists as Nick Cave, Betye Saar, Sue Coe, and Faith Ringgold. She has won awards, grants, and residencies, such as those from Pyramid Atlantic Art Center (DC), the Georgia Humanities Council (Atlanta), the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop (NYC), and many others. Her art is in institutional, and museum collections such as the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and the Edith and Ely Broad Museum of Art in E. Lansing, Michigan. Recent solo shows were preented in New York City; Monterey, California; and at the Georgia Museum of Art in Athens, Georgia. She holds a BFA in drawing, a BS in physics, the MA in art history, and the MFA in painting/printmaking. More information is at www.kristincasaletto.com .
