Ali Shrago-Spechler is an interdisciplinary artist and educator from Hollywood, Florida. Her work explores the malleability of history, imagined community and the landscape of memory. She makes paintings, sculptural objects, installations and interactive events to create a familiar and strange space for her audience. Her hybrid actions employ a reflective nostalgia; exploring the comedy and violence of Jewish histories and cultures while encouraging viewers to question their own
narratives, self-imposed alienation, and the source and effect of memory.
Ali is the recipient of an Artist Fulbright Research grant to Karlsruhe, Germany (2020-21) and the Naomi Anolic Emerging Artist Award (2017) and currently in residence with Project Art in Crown Heights Library. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
