    Alex Belardo Kostiw

    Guest: Alex Belardo Kostiw

    Hosts:  Christopher Kardambikis

    Recorded on June 1, 2021.

    Alex Belardo Kostiw is a graphic designer, artist, and educator. Her practice deals in poetic and iterative elements, visual structures of comics, and conceptually driven forms. Like dense knots, her publications invite interactive, intuitive reading—even as they resist full unravelling. By exploring ambiguities of language, her work is a liminal space for feeling out complicated realities of identity, human intimacy, and other worlds. Alex received an MFA in Visual Communication Design from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BA in English literature from the University of Chicago. She has participated in such shows as the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, LA Art Book Fair, and Chicago Art Book Fair. Her work is in the special collections of several libraries and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. She lives and works in Chicago.

    This conversation was recorded over zoom while Alex Belardo Kostiw was in Chicago and Christopher Kardambikis was in Songdo, South Korea.  There are some moments where the internet connection, and the recording, get a little glitchy.
