Calli Moore is an artist and curator based in Brooklyn, NY. Born and raised in Iowa, Moore received her BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Iowa in 2014 and earned her MFA at American University, Washington, D.C. in 2016. As an artist, Moore’s work deals with the physicality of paint as both a material and form, creating dense sculptural paintings that expand beyond the boundaries of the panel. Moore’s abstract works incorporate a variety of materials (crystals, fabrics, acrylic paint, and foam), which extend her painting vocabulary through experimentation with non-traditional mark-making tools. Moore has shown work across the United States and has held residencies at GlogauAIR in Berlin (2015) and the Chautauqua Institute, Chautauqua, NY (2016). Moore has exhibited work in several group shows in New York as well as nationally and internationally (see CV). Moore recently curated at SPRING/BREAK Art Show 2018 and will be collaborating with The Wall Street Journal in May 2018 for SYNT.
