Alexis Rivierre is an interdisciplinary artist who constructs visual narratives that investigate memory, identity, representation and the social implications of race in the United States. Rivierre earned her MFA in Studio art with an emphasis in painting at Wichita State University in 2018, a Graduate Certificate in Marketing from Liberty University in 2015 and a BFA in Art/Painting, with a minor in Art History from Missouri State University in 2014.
Images constructed in film and the broader media possess a social and political power that is used to construct the collective identities of how we perceive ourselves in relationship to those positioned as "the other”. Through an interdisciplinary, fractured, process I create visual narratives that investigate the ways in which the representation of race through language and visual media play a role in how we are socialized in the United States.
