Joanna Malinowska, assistant professor of the practice in art, works mainly in sculpture, video, and performance.

She was included in the 2012 Whitney Biennial, and the 56th Venice Biennale (2015).

A graduate of the sculpture departments at Rutgers University and Yale School of Art, Malinowska has received awards from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, among other places. She is represented by CANADA gallery in New York City. Malinowska frequently collaborates with her partner C. T. Jasper, most recently creating The Emperor's Canary, a project commissioned by the High Line Park in New York City.
