Alisa Margolis is an American artist whose paintings explore the intersection of the Baroque and a contemporary intuitive practice of picture making. Parallel to this practice, she tests the confines of the painting frame, as an object in the world through site specific painting installations. She received her BA from Columbia University in New York (1997) in Visual Art and Art History and MFA fellowship from de Ateliers in Amsterdam, Netherlands (2003). Her work has been shown in exhibitions internationally, such as the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, The Prague biennial, Renaissance Society, Chicago and the Triumph of Painting at the Saatchi Gallery, London. In 2016, Margolis was awarded a Visiting Professorship at The Academy of Fine Arts at the University of the Arts Helsinki. In Berlin, Margolis is represented by Galerie Judin.
