About Alisa Cunnington

BA Honours Visual Art Brock University, 1996
MA Popular Culture Brock University, 2011

Alisa Cunnington is a mixed media artist working with found objects, assemblage, fabric/quilting, drawing, installation, and book arts.  She has worked as an artist, curator and educator and is an active participant and member of the Niagara arts community.  After a hiatus from art production to pursue other academic interests she has renewed her practice in an effort to further investigate relationships, intersections and interstices between memory, history, cartography, archaeology and story/myth.   Fascinated by the untold story obscured by the process of representation and the separate subjectivities of viewer and collector/creator, her work is most often a collection that focuses on connections between objects, spaces and places, stories and surfaces. After working in the arts community she made a shift to academics and has been working full time at Brock University as an Academic Adviser and as a part time instructor for a variety of departments in Humanities for a number of years.  She enjoys the connections she has made in the music, literary, theatre, and film arts worlds and now appreciates understanding the larger contexts of cultural production.
