Ellie Krakow earned her MFA from Hunter College and her BA through study at Yale University and the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions at venues including Marinaro, Below Grand, Goodyear Gallery at Dickinson College, NURTUREart, Spring/Break, Field Projects, Thierry Goldberg, Present Company, Wasserman Projects, Kingston Sculpture Biennial, and the Pula Film Festival. She has participated in residencies at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Yaddo, Abrons Arts Center, Shandaken: Stormking, and The Swimming Hole Foundation.
Parallel to her studio practice, Krakow works on text-based and curatorial projects as a way to build dialogue and discourse around themes that matter to her including bodily and environmental loss; mirroring as a potential site of transformation; and displaced or disabled communication. These projects have been presented and published through organizations including The Whitney Museum of American Art, VECTOR Artist Journal, Printed Matter, Thomas Hunter Project Space, Drain Magazine, Lookie Lookie, and Skowhegan Public Programs.
She currently teaches sculpture and is the director of Mazmanian Gallery at Framingham State University.
