Commodity Takes Over

Alicia Grullon is a performance artist whose work deals with encounters between people. She works in public spaces, creating social interventions and re-enactments of true stories in which passersby are invited to participate. Her interventions pertain to race, class and gender-based identities and ideas of belonging and not belonging. The re-enactments she does examine the space between memory and experience.  Check out Alicia’s profile.
