Robin Assner-Alvey is a practicing artist working with photography, video and installation. Her work examines corporality and asks viewers to consider the experience of living in their own skin. She is an Associate Professor of Art in the Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts at Webster University in St. Louis, MO, where she teaches all levels of photography. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Connecticut and her Master of Fine Arts from the Ohio State University. Robin’s art has been exhibited in various solo and group shows throughout the United States.
In addition to her own work, Robin is a part of two different art collaborations, one with Adam Watkins, local St. Louis sound artist, where they collaborate on abstract videos and sound works. The second collaboration is with Sarah Nitschke from Milwaukee and they are working on a long-term, multi-part, multi-disciplinary series of artworks called “The Acts of Hope and Futility.”
