Lisa Alembik is an artist, educator and curator. She has been on staff at Agnes Scott since 2002.
At the Dalton Gallery, she recently organized the “Quadrennial: Greater Decatur 2010” and “My sweet, sweet….” Past curations include “Blackbird on your shoulder: stories and other truths from the South,” “limbs, heart, tongue & teeth” and “The Velocity of Gesture, or How to Build an Empire.”
Alembik’s artwork focuses on cultural ideas of landscape, home and the fleshy body that are influenced by the migrations and atrocities of modern history. Her drawings, paintings and installations have been exhibited throughout the southeast, including the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia and the Huntsville Museum. She was recently included in “Pap Art,” which traveled from Truman State University in Missouri to San Francisco’s City College Art Gallery. She is a Hambidge Center Fellow and an active participant in the Georgia arts’ community.
Alembik is invited to speak and mentor on curatorial and professional practices. She teaches informally at Agnes Scott as the gallery programming is interwoven into the arts curriculum. She has been visiting faculty at Agnes Scott, Emory University, North Georgia College and State University and Atlanta College of Art.
