about

Alex Donis is a LA-based artist whose work examines and redefines the boundaries set within religion, politics, race, and sexuality. Interested in toppling societies' relationship to convention, his work is often influenced by a tri-cultural (Pop, Latin & Queer) experience. He has worked extensively in a variety of media including painting, installation, photography, video, and works on paper.

His work has been at the heart of several controversial incidents that have stirred national debates regarding censorship in the arts. He has participated in hundreds of national and international individual and group exhibitions, most notably: "Made in California: Art, Image & Identity 1900-2000" at the LA County Museum of Art and The 10th Biennale of Havana, Cuba. His work has appeared in numerous publications including Art in America, Flash Art, Artpapers, ArtForum, ArtNews and The New York Times.

Donis has been awarded residencies at the Brandywine Institute, Philadelphia; Artspace, Sydney, Australia and the18th Street Arts Center, Santa Monica. He was the guest curator for the exhibit "Collaboration Labs: Southern California Artists and the Artist Space Movement" which was part of the 2011 Getty initiative "Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980". His work is in the permanent collection of the LA County Museum of Art, the San Diego Museum of Art, and the Blanton Museum of Art, at the University of Texas, Austin.
