Alia Ali (Arabic: عاليه علي) is an award-winning Yemeni-Bosnian-US multimedia global artist who has traveled to sixty-seven countries, lived in and between seven, and grown up among five languages. Her practice explores and rescinds accepted cultural binaries, challenges culturally sanctioned oppression, and confronts the dualistic barriers of conflicted notions of gender, politics, media, and citizenship. Recently her work has been acquired by the British Museum, Princeton University and the Tucson Museum of Art and her art is held in a number of private collections across the world. In 2020, Ali was given a solo exhibition at the prestigious New Orleans Museum of Art entitled FLUX (2019-2021). Recently, her work has been featured in the Financial Times, Le Monde, Art Review and Hyperallergic and her work was just presented at ZONAMACO Mexico City in February 2022.
