Espen Iden (f. 1989, Bergen) er en interdisiplinær kunstner som er opptatt av tverrfaglighet, samarbeid og pedagogikk.

Kuratering, DJ-arrangementer og formidling er også deler av hans virke. BFA (2009-2012) og PPU (2015-2016) fra Kunsthøgskolen i Bergen, MFA fra Kunstakademiet i Oslo (2017-2019). Grunnlegger og kurator for Periferien (2013-), Felt (2015-2017), 666 Lounge (2019-) og Memphis (2019-).
