Alexis Hudgins



Alexis Hudgins is a visual artist and scholar whose practice incorporates video, performance, installation, sculpture and writing. With almost 20 years of experience working in reality television and later as a producer for artist Paul McCarthy, her current work addresses the implications of labor within contemporary cultural production and creative practices. Alexis started as a production assistant in reality television in the early 2000s on America’s Next Top Model, Project Runway and Wife Swap, working her way up to a producer. Between 2011 and 2016, Alexis served as a media and project producer in the studio of Paul and Damon McCarthy, where she oversaw the production and installation of WS (2013) at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. Alexis’ extensive professional work in both of these arenas continues to inform her research activities as a doctoral candidate in the PhD Program in Art History, Theory and Criticism with a concentration in Art Practice at the University of California, San Diego. Alexis performed her text, Keep the Event Open, at Coquit Gallery in Los Angeles, (2020) and Block Projects in Sheffield, England (2019). Alexis has a BA in art history from Emory University, a BFA from Calarts and MFA from UCLA, both in photography.
