Kaleena Stasiak

Kaleena Stasiak is 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. Her 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 Ancient Art Objects curated by Katie Geha at Whitespace in Atlanta, GA, Give Them the Slip curated by Wendy Vogel and presented by Regina Rex at bitforms Gallery in New York, NY, and Identity Measures curated by Jordan Amirkhani at the Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans, LA. Stasiak received her BFA in Printmaking from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Ontario in 2008 and her MFA in Printmaking & Book Arts from the University of Georgia in 2018. Currently she is Lecturer in Printmaking & Foundations at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia.
