Malinowska Hired for Sculpture and Drawing
The art department has hired Joanna Malinowska as an associate professor of the practice in sculpture and drawing, for a two-year appointment. Malinowska works mainly in sculpture, video, and performance. Her projects — often inspired by an interest in cultural clashes, anthropology, prehistory, and music — have been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as the SculptureCenter and CANADA gallery in New York City; Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton in Paris; Saatchi Gallery and Nottingham Contemporary in Great Britain; Yokohama Museum of Art in Japan; and Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw. 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.
