Alicia Grullon creates work that transforms how community and history are experienced. She uses true narratives and situations where power relations or identity are in question. Grullon is interested in exploring encounters between people and how they are locations where issues of race, class, gender, and activism open. What her role is as artist in the community and how art can actively serve community are questions she reconsiders when developing projects. Inspired by citizen action movements, her response to current events or social issues comes from an impulse to use art as chronicle and witness. Grullon pays particular attention to the intersections of photography, video and performance and how the work borders between reality and theatricality, the staged and the documented. She has exhibited at El Museo del Barrio, Bronx Museum of the Arts, Socrates Sculpture Park, Marccone and BRIC Galleries. She’s participated in Performa 11, Art in Odd Places, and in the Artists Files with A Blade of Grass Foundation. Her work has been funded by Franklin Furnace Archives, The Puffin Foundation, Department of Cultural Affairs, Bronx Council of the Arts, and the Crompton Foundation. Residencies include: Bronx Museum, Korea Arts Council, Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts and Migrating Academies in Kassel, Germany.
