Allison Olivia Evans



Allison Evans graduated with her MFA from the University of Notre Dame in 2015. Researching the phenomenology of light and experiential, site-specific video installation, she generates immersive projections that simulate overlooked natural phenomena. Her work stresses the importance of sensorial acuity and highlights the agential nature of light and space. Evans has received awards and scholarships including the Redux Contemporary Art Center’s Award for Photography, the Graduate Student Research Scholarship and the Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award at the University of Notre Dame. She has participated in a number of group and juried shows across the country, and had her first solo show at the Rick Rhodes Gallery in Charleston, SC. In June 2015, she presented a collaborative case study on projection mapping and video installation at the 2nd Motion Design Education (MODE) Conference in Dublin, Ireland. Her work on Light Studies was published in the 2015-2016 Manifest International Photography Annual and she was named the Philip C. Curtis Artist-in-Residence at Albion College in the spring of 2017.
