Introducing the new FLAD / AiR 351 grant recipient (2024 edition): Alisha Wessler.

Alisha Wessler’s sculptures, drawings, installations, and their interactions serve as poetic inquiries into both formal and cultural histories. Through an intuitive, process-based approach that’s equally interested in the functional uses, cultural narratives, and elemental properties evoked by bronze, clay, wax, fabric, and found objects, her work often relies on research into idiosyncratic instances where the natural and anthropocentric worlds meet.

Wessler has exhibited her work internationally, including at at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (Nuremberg, Germany) Galerie Tator (Lyon, France), Kunsthalle Nummer Sieben (St. Petersburg, Russia), Tiger Strikes Asteroid (Philadelphia, PA), the Bronx Museum of the Arts (Bronx, NY), Smack Mellon (Brooklyn, NY), among others.

We wish to thank all applicants for their interest in this call, to the selection committee members (Nathalie Anglès, Isabel Carlos and Sébastien Pluot) for their precious collaboration and to FLAD (Luso-American Development Foundation) for making this opportunity possible.

We look forward to welcoming Alisha to our Cascais headquarters for a residency of 4 months.
