Alicia Ehni is a multidisciplinary artist who uses pure geometry and pre-Columbian iconography to address territory concerns in shifting landscapes. Her art practice draws from personal and collective experiences of living in the Peruvian desert. Ehni explores sculptural forms through combining distinct and often mutually exclusive cultural references, like superstition, Pre-Columbian iconography and architecture. Using the poetic qualities of different materials, she creates multiple series of works. Ehni was born in Lima, Peru, studied art at Universidad Católica, Perú, Pratt Institute and Arts Management at NYU.
Ehni is Program Officer at New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), she facilitates and manages Spanish-speaking workshops and panels, professional development programs and entrepreneurial training including Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program. She is Editor of NYFA Immigrant Artist Newsletter, ArtTable NY Chapter Chair for Membership, NALAC 2018 Leadership Institute Fellow and current SHIFT resident at Elizabeth Foundation. She was Director of Frederico Seve Gallery/Latincollector, NY in her previous role.
