Anida Yoeu Ali is an artist, educator and global agitator born in Cambodia, raised in Chicago and currently rooted in Tacoma. Ali’s artistic works span performance, installation, new media, public encounters, and political agitation.

Ali’s solo show “Hybrid Skin, Mythical Presence” is currently on view at the Seattle Asian Art Museum and marks the first time a Cambodian American artist has been shown in the museum’s 90 year history. Her artistic works have been the recipient of grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, Ford Foundation, the National Endowment of the Arts and the Art Matters Foundation. She received her B.F.A. from University of Illinois and an M.F.A. from School of the Art Institute Chicago. Ali is also the co-founder of Studio Revolt, an award-winning media lab with her long-time collaborating partner, filmmaker Masahiro Sugano.
