Erin Mallea Part-Time Instructor

MFA, Carnegie Mellon University

BA, Loyola Marymount University

Erin Mallea is a multidisciplinary artist motivated by an attempt to better understand the messiness of spaces she inhabits. Grounded in a generative research process, her work often focuses on the social and political dynamics embedded within relationships to place, land and the environment. Erin has exhibited internationally, presented a proposal to the Colonial Dames of America advocating for the decolonized memorialization of a historic oak tree, spent a summer with biologists investigating land-use near her hometown in the Mountain West, and sent vibrations from a giant fungus throughout the atmosphere. She received her MFA from Carnegie Mellon in 2019.
