Alex Callender

Alex Callender’s studio practice incorporates painting, drawing and installation to explore the intersections between myth, identity and material culture. Through the visual forms of historical narrative, repurposed archival imagery, and speculative fictions, she considers questions of migration, environmental instability, and hybridized landscapes. Callender has exhibited both nationally and internationally, and has held studio residencies with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, The Drawing Center’s Open Session program, the Art in Embassies Program, The Vermont Studio Center, Urban Glass, the Tides Institute and Museum of Art, Alice Yard in Trinidad, and DRAWinternational and The BAU Institute in France. Callender is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Smith College.
