Krista Brand is a multidisciplinary artist and curator, living and working in Eastern Washington.
Identities of place, discarded objects, and the emotional currency of materials have informed her artistic practice. Her current work explores everyday encounters with litter and plastic waste, slyly questioning aesthetic and cultural value systems by examining and reframing cross-sections of urban landscapes.
She co-founded Side x Side Contemporary, an online exhibition space focused on supporting international and emerging artists.
Krista 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 has been an instructor of art and ceramics at Washington State University, where she currently works as an academic coordinator in fine arts.
