Marta Rodriguez Maleck works in audio, video, and installation, engaging people in participatory methods of storytelling that encourage communal accountability, healing, and understanding. Her work explores how much agency we have, as individuals and communities, in narrating our own experiences. By creating environments conducive to self-reflection, she explores the roles we play in our interactions with one another and where the intersections of our identities and prejudices lie.

Rodriguez Maleck has shown publicly and institutionally at the NOMA, New Orleans Public Library, and Canal Place Mall in New Orleans, Baby Blue Gallery and Ana’s in Chicago, AnyTime Dept in Cincinnati, the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, and Ground Floor Gallery in Brooklyn. A recipient of grant support from the Andy Warhol Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, and the Jazz and Heritage Foundation, Rodriguez Maleck was featured in OnCurating, Burnaway, and New American Paintings. Rodriguez Maleck lives and works in New Orleans.
