Alison Ward is a multimedia artist based in Kingsbury, Texas. Her work spans the gamut from vaudeville to multimedia installation sculptures, but in everything she does she creates pieces that involve a larger audience, getting them directly involved and participating in the work. She is currently working on a collective project called Habitable Spaces. Habitable Spaces is part ecovillage, part living sculpture. It is a continually evolving project that invites a community of artists and farmers in to help visualize utopia.
Before arriving in Kingsbury, Alison lived and worked in New York city showing and performing at the Queens Museum, The Dumbo Arts Center, the Bronx Museum, the CCCB Museum in Spain, RAW Space Gallery in Australia, Castlefield Gallery in England, and the Ponce Museum in Puerto Rico. She has done residencies at Raw Space in Australia, The Artist in the Marketplace Program, the LMCC studio program, Swing Space, Flux Factory and the Islington Mill in Manchester. She has received grants and awards from the Brooklyn Arts Council, the Lewisham Arts council in London, the Idea fund in Houston, the GVEC Power up grant, Union Pacific, the San Antonio Area Foundation and the Texas Commission on the Arts.
