Alice Wang is a Los Angeles based artist and filmmaker. Working in sculpture, drawing, digital media, and experimental film, Alice explores various scientific, technological, and metaphysical systems to imagine new aesthetics forms. In the same way that mathematics can be used as a perceptual organ, art making for Alice is a method of invention and discovery of alternative temporalities. Materials, forms, genres, and ideas become malleable in her creative process, which allows for surprises and the unexpected to happen. Alice received her BSc from the University of Toronto, BFA from the California Institute of the Arts, and MFA from New York University. Between 2012 to 2013, Alice was living and working in Paris through the support of the Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Foundation. She was recently a Villa Aurora Fellow in Berlin. Alice has exhibited at Immanence (Paris), The Armory Center for the Arts (Pasadena), Cutlog Art Fair (New York), and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, among others. She will be having a solo exhibition at Galleri Detroit Stockholm in Sweden this fall. Alice currently teaches Photography and Critical Theory in the Art Department at UCSB.
