Alice Aycock was born in Harrisburg, PA. She received a B.A. from Douglass College and an M.A. from Hunter College. Currently she is represented by Galerie Thomas Schulte in Berlin and Fredric Snitzer Gallery in Miami, FL. Her works can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NY, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, the Louis Vuitton Foundation, LA County Museum, and the National Gallery, among others. She has had two major retrospectives. The first surveyed her work between 1972 and 1983, organized by the Wurttembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart, and the other retrospective entitled “Complex Visions” was organized by the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, NY. In 2013, a retrospective of her drawings was exhibited at the new Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, New York coinciding with the Grey Art Gallery in New York City. The retrospective travelled to the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at the University of California, Santa Barbara and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in 2014. A fully illustrated catalogue, “Some Stories are Worth Repeating,” with an essay by Jonathan Fineberg accompanied the retrospective.
Aycock’s public sculptures can be found throughout the United States, including the San Francisco Public Library, a large-scale sculptural roof installation for the East River Park Pavilion on 60th Street in NYC, and “Star Sifter” for Terminal 1 at JFK International Airport. Other projects include a GSA commission for the Fallon Building in Baltimore, an outdoor piece entitled “Strange Attractor”, at the Kansas City Int’l Airport, and “Ghost Ballet for the East Bank Machineworks” in Nashville, Tennessee. A permanent public artwork for Washington Dulles International Airport, Washington, D.C. was completed in 2012, as well as a work for Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI. In March 2014, a series of seven sculptures were installed on the Park Avenue Malls in New York City, entitled “Park Avenue Paper Chase”.
