Alice Rekab is a Three Year Membership Studio Artist at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and commissioned artist for Culture Night 2020.

Alice Rekab's practice is concerned with expressions and iterations of complex cultural and personal narratives. Alice Rekab takes their own mixed-race Irish identity as a starting point from which to explore experiences of race, place and belonging. Over the last ten years Alice Rekab's practice has centred around collaboration and interdisciplinary work from which they produce film, performance, image and sculpture, creating new intersectional narratives and objects for exhibition.

Projects include Ricochet #14, Museum Villa Stuck, Munich (2021); Two External Light Sources At The Same Time, Atrium, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios (2019); The Nomoli/Father talk, VERY Project Space, Berlin (2019) and The Open Object, Stanley Picker Gallery, London (2018). Alice Rekab is a recipient of the Visual Arts Bursary Award 2020.
