bio

Alice Lang was born in Byron Bay, Australia. Her cross-disciplinary art practice generates social and interactive spaces that explore how objects achieve public and personal meaning through the politics of their material. Her work is invested in exploring the potential for everyday objects to instigate mindful social interaction through their performativity within an art context. 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).
