Assistant Professor of New Media & Animation
Originally from Miami, FL, Cristina Molina received a BA in psychology and a BFA in studio art from Florida International University. She earned a MFA with a concentration in Art + Technology from the University of Florida in Gainesville. Molina's art practice stems from an interest in abstract psychological themes such as affect, behavioral motivation, and interpersonal communication. Technologies of food, electronic media, sculpture, and performance are combined to produce immersive installations/situations that sensorially activate audience members' bodies, and encourage a platform for participation within the work.
Cristina Molina's work has been exhibited in international and national venues such as , El Palacio de Bellas Artes in the Dominican Republic, the Gallery at the Universita Degli Studi di Genova in Genoa, Italy, The Dialogue Space at Proyecto 'Ace in Buenos Aires Argentina, ArteAmericas, North Miami MOCA, SCOPE international art fair, Frost Museum of Art in Miami, Harn Museum of art in Gainesville, Girls Club Collection in Ft.
