Artist’s Website

Allison Wiese

Allison Wiese received her BA from Brown University and her MFA from the University of California at San Diego. She has always been interested in podiums, stages, and pulpits. She is particularly fascinated with the impromptu platform of the soapbox, and the minimal but important conditions necessary to render it as a place of authority. Most of Allison's work has a performance quality - she alters spaces through acts of labeling, christening, or commemoration, creating platforms from which to speak out of the ordinary fashion.
