Graduate Student Profile
Alison is a graduate candidate in the Intermedia Studio Program at the University of Texas at Arlington. Human nature/behavior, interactions, and private thoughts inspire her work; much of which is autobiographical. Her current body of work includes writing and performing both live and in video presentations.
She has exhibited widely in Michigan, New York, and throughout Northern Texas and most recently attended the Taller Portobelo Interdisciplinary Summer Art Colony in Panama, where she staged several performances of her work. She is also the co-founder of PerformanceSW, a project in support of the proliferation of performance art outside of the American mainstream discourse.
