Alexis Powell is a multimedia artist and musician whose work ruminates on themes of the unconscious - particularly memory, dreams, and desire, and the ways in which human beings connect, correspond, and collaborate in that subliminal realm. She is a founding member of the Meerkat Media Collective, with whom she has collaboratively produced, directed and edited many shorts, music videos and an award-winning feature documentary, STAGES. Alexis is a 2015 Brooklyn Arts Council grantee for her multimedia project “An Invitation to Sleep”. She was a performer and crew on the experimental documentary HERE’S TO THE FUTURE! which was directed by Brooklyn filmmaker Gina Telaroli, and premiered in the 2014 Migrating Forms festival at BAM. In 2013, Alexis was a recipient of the Danish International Visiting Artists Residency Grant.
Alexis also has an MA in Drama Therapy from New York University.
