Kristen Tordella-Williams is a contemporary carpetbagger who was raised in Massachusetts, lived and worked in Jackson, Mississippi for seven years, and now lives in Opelika, Alabama. Her research focuses on the impact the past has on our present through labor both personal and communal. Tordella-Williams re-interprets materials commonly found in recycling bins, hardware stores, visual archives, and nature as remnants of our labor and explores issues of social justice, identity, gender, and memory manifest in these works.

Kristen has exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently in an old slaughterhouse in Sigmaringen, Germany. She has been an artist in residence at Salem Art Works, the Ateliers im Alten Schlachthof, and Franconia Sculpture Park. She received grants from the Greater Jackson Arts Council and the Mississippi Arts Commission to support the creation of the Eudora Welty Wreath, a large scale, community engaged public sculpture. 

Kristen is the President of the Mid-South Sculpture Alliance and was the curator of the Midtown Sculpture Walk in Jackson, MS. She’s currently an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at Auburn University. Peek inside Kristen's current studio practice by following her on Instagram.
