Allison Maletz is a mixed media artist. She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. Her most recent work focuses on the idea of the secretly dysfunctional western family. Her artwork is bright, humorous, and nostalgic, but evokes discomfort and allows for the possibility that something grotesque is trying to surface. She has shown in the Liverpool Biennial, New Contemporaries UK, and the Moscow Biennale for Young Artists at the MMoMA. She lives and works in New York City.
