A Labour of Love
Alisha Abate is an emerging contemporary artist and creative producer, living and working in Melbourne. She graduated from a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sculptural and Spatial practice) from Victorian College of the Arts. Alisha’s family migrated from Italy to Melbourne's West in 1959 where they began working in local industries. Her sculptural practice explores how the living body inhabits space and the reciprocal relationship of how space is seen and constructed.
Alisha has previously participated in residencies at Testing Grounds and Melbourne’s Living Museum of the West where her work went on to be published in internationally distributed Inflexion Journal. Alisha has produced shows as a part of Midsumma Festival and Melbourne Fringe, exhibited extensively in galleries around Melbourne and is the recipient of awards from West Space and Chapman & Bailey.
