bio

Alice Lang is an Australian artist currently based in Los Angeles. Her cross-disciplinary art practice examines how political ideas and existing power structures disseminate and manifest within individual bodies and mass culture. Lang's work examines the shifting relationship between text, image, object, and body that occurs when political identity is layered with lived experience and political ideas and strategies are appropriated by popular and capitalist culture.  Her practice seeks to explore the ways in which these ideas manifest in objects and images and how they can be subverted and reclaimed.

Lang graduated from the MFA program at CalArts in 2015 and has completed residencies in Canada, New York and Los Angeles. She has been the recipient of awards such as the Queensland Art Gallery Melville Haysom Scholarship (2009), Australia Council New Work Grant (2012), Lord Mayors Emerging Artist Fellowship (2012) and the Freedman Foundation Travelling Scholarship for Emerging Artists (2013). She is a founding co-director of LEVEL artist-run-initiative (Brisbane, Australia) and is represented by Karen Woodbury Gallery in Melbourne, Australia.
