Guest Artist: Alexandra Grant

Alexandra Grant is a Los Angeles-based artist who uses language, literature and exchanges with artists and writers as the basis for her work in painting, drawing and sculpture. Her collaborators have included philosopher and playwright Hélène Cixous, hypertext pioneer Michael Joyce, artist Channing Hansen, and actor and writer Keanu Reeves. Alexandra translates, interprets and represents language and words in the creation of artworks ranging from intricate to large-scale, both two- and three-dimensional.

Alexandra has been featured in the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (MOCA), the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and several museums and galleries in the U.S. and abroad. 

Visit Alexandra's website for more images.

Her newest body of work, Antigone 3000, is part of These Carnations Defy Language, a two-person show with Steve Roden at the Pasadena Museum of California Art through November 1, 2015. View Exhibition page.
