Alexis Zoto

Alexis Zoto’s work is inspired by her Albanian Orthodox heritage and her experiences as a woman, artist, educator, wife and mother living in Los Angeles. Her work deals with themes of acculturation and feminism. Often she pair stories from antiquity with family lore to create works that manifest themselves as contemporary baroque assemblages.

She has shown widely in Los Angeles, as well as nationally and internationally. She recently made a site specific installation for the Tom Bradley International Terminal at the Los Angeles International Airport. Her work was recently selected for an official collateral event at the Venice Biennale and a cultural exchange exhibition between Los Angeles and Prague and an exhibition in Berlin.

Alexis Zoto was born in Philadelphia, PA and currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. She is currently an assitant professor at the University of Southern California Gayle Garner Roski School of Fine Art and Design.
