ALEXANDMUSHI is a collaboration between Alex Nichols and Mushi Wooseong James. They are conceptual artists based in San Francisco examining humanity’s central theme: connection. Two names, two people and in between all the bodies of work are thousands of conversations. Their work is a testing ground where projects become entry points into the boundaries of ourselves to see the ways in which two people can forge a connection. Taking the other’s reality into account is critical to challenging the constructs we are born into. As conceptual artists, their work exists in the realm of social practice, performance, documentation of durational process.
ALEXANDMUSHI have exhibited their works in the U.S., Asia, and Europe. They are the recipients of artist residencies in California, Taiwan, and Mexico. Alex and Mushi have participated and worked with The American Anthropological Association, AIASF, Djerassi
Residency, Bamboo Curtain Studio, Centro Fotográfico Álvarez Bravo Oaxaca, Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco, Fort Mason Center for Arts and Culture San Francisco, MACO Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Oaxaca, MOCA Taipei, Recology San Francisco, University of San Francisco, and Zonamaco Art Fair. Alex and Mushi are also the executive director and co-director of Think Make Tank artist collective, an organization dedicated to building a community around collaboration, experimentation, and improvisation.
