Krista Brand (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist and curator, living and working in eastern Washington. Her work explores everyday encounters with litter and plastic waste, sifting through curbsides, parking lots, and cracks in the sidewalk. By making the discarded personal and the cast-off familiar, her work carries an undertone of both imaginative empathy and disquiet.

Krista co-founded Side x Side Contemporary, an online exhibition space focused on supporting international and emerging artists. She was a resident artist at Arts Letters & Numbers, a grant-supported member at Saranac Art Projects, and was a visiting artist at Palouse Prairie Charter School. Krista works as an academic coordinator and instructor of art at Washington State University.
