Alona Weiss (b.Ramat Gan, Israel), is a multidisciplinary artist working with video and mixed media, currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Her practice renders the intersection of monumentality, language, and trickery within the confines of society. Appropriating public sites into ad-hoc video sets, she stages human vs structure conversations, explores the elusive flux between content and form, and draws connections between power relations, and the lure of nostalgia.
She received her MFA from Parsons – The New School, and has been awarded the Hearst Scholarship, The AICF, The Oscar Collin Fellowship, Parsons Graduate Award, Graduate Dean’s Scholarship, and The New School Merit Scholarships. Recent exhibitions include: Lynch-Tham gallery in New York, The Beijing Film Academy in China, The Kitchen in New York, Haifa Museum in Israel, Room Service in Brooklyn, 25 East gallery in New York, The Hollows Art Space in Brooklyn, Amos Eno gallery in Brooklyn, The New School University Center in New York, Lincoln Center in New York, Museum of Underground Prisoners in Jerusalem, HaZira Performance Art Arena in Jerusalem, and The Genia Schreiber University Art Gallery in Tel Aviv.
