Alicia McDaniel is an interdisciplinary visual artist and educator. Her image-making practice is multifaceted and experimental as she works within the realms of installation, painting, sculpture, book making, and video. Her work originates within her and her family's’ different experiences with racial profiling, skin privilege, and assimilation in both historical and contemporary instances.
She earned her BA in Studio Art at Mills College and her MFA from the California College of the Arts where she is currently a candidate for an MA in Visual Critical Studies. McDaniel is currently a Studio Artist and the Exhibitions Fellow at Root Division gallery where she curates the Frank-Ratchye Space gallery and writes for the Root Division Talks Blog.
