2021 Workshop – UNCOVERING THAT WHICH WE HAVE FORGOTTEN, July 18 – 23, 2021

As an artist deeply grounded in race and gender theory, Alex attempts to bridge connections between seemingly endless cultural miscommunication. With any culture, language plays a key role in shaping both individual ideology and group think. Influenced by his upbringing in the midwest-an area heavily impacted by race-politics and industrial commerce — Alex measures those experiences against his current home in a contemporary urban landscape. His art incorporates a wide range of media, historical documents, pop iconography, and current events in order to demystify the politics of geography. Alex currently works as a student affairs professional for New York University in New York City.
