The Alice is a contemporary art space located in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. The Alice is run by a curatorial collective of seven artists and writers: Julia Freeman, Julia Heineccius, Bettina Judd, Natalie A. Martínez, Minh Nguyen, Thea Quiray Tagle, and Dan Paz.
The Alice is an artist-run space run by a collective of majority queer/ women/ of color artists, writers, and curators. We prioritize supporting people of color, Indigenous peoples, LGBTQ folks, and women in our exhibitions and programming, and strive to bring these voices and images to the fore. Through our collective and collaborative labor, we aim to foster dialogue about difficult political, social, and cultural issues and to create more inclusive communities of makers and thinkers. Simply put, The Alice believes in the power of visual art, performance, and writing to transform the world into a more just and equitable place.
The Alice presents new work and experimental projects by Pacific Northwest, national and international artists, with a preference for work that has a strong physicality. The Alice is a space where artists, writers, thinkers and makers can create community and dialogue through contemporary art, curatorial opportunities, and alternative modes of production.
Very special thanks to the resources and good will of Sharon Arnold from LxWxH and Bridge Productions (who gifted The Alice such a nice beginning) and to founding curator Julie Alexander for all the hard work and love she shared with The Alice from 2014-2016.
