bio

Allison Maletz is a contemporary mixed media artist. She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design where she began as a documentary style artist-photographer. For years she traveled throughout the world making photographs about being normal, yet misplaced. During her sojourn in London while completing her MFA at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, Maletz started making sound installations and large-scale watercolor paintings from photographs. This reinvented relationship to photography allowed her to further evolve concepts which questioned normality and what it means to ‘belong.’ 

 

Maletz is currently living and working in New York City, and has exhibited in the Liverpool Biennial, New Contemporaries UK, Zoo Art Italy, The Royal Watercolor Society in London, and the Moscow Biennale for Young Artists at the MMoMA. Her first New York solo show, Together, was at the Christopher Henry Gallery in 2013 followed by another solo show called Game at Calico Brooklyn in 2016. Recently she has exhibited at the National Arts Club, the Denny Gallery, Fresh Window, NURTUREart, The Ugly Art Room, and the Florence Griswold Museum.

 

In addition, Allison Maletz teaches watercolor, drawing, photography, installation, illustration and professional development for artists at Parsons, The New School University and Marymount Manhattan College for BFA and BA students. She also teaches adult education classes at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, The National Academy Museum, 92nd St. Y, and Trestle Gallery / Brooklyn Art Space.
