Alison Knowles is a genuinely interdisciplinary artist. One of the original members of the Fluxus group in the 1960s, she was a founder of Something Else Press (with her husband Dick Higgins), the source of numerous iconic publications connected to Fluxus, including Notations, the book she edited with John Cage. Her works have encompassed performance, sound, conceptual art, sculptural work incorporating found objects, pieces made from handmade paper, printmaking, and artists’ books. Her work is collected internationally, and she has an active career as a practicing artist and as a guest lecturer and teacher. In 2008 alone, she has done residencies in New York; Minneapolis; Durham, NY; London; Cologne; Cardiff, Wales; and Genova, Italy. After her visit to Columbia College, she will be performing in Berne and Zurich, Switzerland, and have an exhibition of her series “Rake’s Progress” in Berlin.
