#SPOTLIGHT ON ESTER ALEGRIA

How did you come of age as an artist? How did you come to your current practice?

I believe we're all born "of age" in our artistry, as our passions grew with us in the womb. 

What was the inspiration for your Open TV project?

Initial footage was taken downtown Chicago in the summer of 2016, while I was having a panic attack. I started dancing to calm myself and realized not many people were watching me. I felt free. I danced in several places that afternoon, recording myself over the long 5 hours. In collaboration with Angie Perez, ambivert has shifted into a dialogue about exhibiting physical freedom while managing chronic illness.

What's next for you or your series?
