Born 1981 in Berkshire, UK. Recently completed an MFA in Fine Art at the Valand Academy, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Alexander Stevenson is an independent artist working on commissions in the public realm, within international festivals, with contemporary galleries and with a focus on self-initiated projects. In his practice he mines information using processes usually associated with anthropologists, historians and researchers to create artworks, journeys and films.

Stevenson's artworks draw attention to the complicated relationship we have with the narratives of history, to cultural stories about place, and post-colonial thinking. Craft processes, theatrical video, costume and sculptures question how cultural projection onto places and their histories can mask understanding, and appear entangled with colonial processes.

Past commissions include: a printmaking project on public billboards for Göteborg Stad, Cynosure​, an SVHS installation and a 16mm dance film for The Centre for Moving Image Research, Bristol Experimental and Expanded Film and Rogue Studios, Manchester; Quilt Cowboy​, an exhibition and film, commissioned by Situations for The American Museum in Britain, Bath; and Odyssean​, an artist residency in North Ronaldsay Lighthouse, Orkney Isles.
