Tripoli Gallery

Alice Hope received an M.F.A. from Yale University, and shows at Ricco Maresca Gallery in Manhattan. She has exhibited since the late 1980s and was named 2018 “Woman to Watch” for New York by the National Museum of Women in the Arts. Hope has created numerous public and residential commissions, among them a large-scale magnetic installation, “Under the Radar”, in 2012 at Camp Hero State Park in Montauk, NY for the Parrish Art Museum. She often incorporates binary code and repetition in her compositions. In her 2013 Armory Show Project, Hope was commissioned by the Fair to create two public works; one panel innumerably repeated the binary code for the word “love”, and the other repeated the code for “blind”. In 2013, she inaugurated WNYC Greene Space’s new lobby, where she installed a dense site- specific work with thousands of neodymium magnets and pieces of ball chain. She was an artist in residence at the Museum of Art and Design from 2014-15, and then built a six-month site-specific installation outside the Queens Museum with more than a million used can tabs. This work was part of a wider project that reckoned the fluctuating value and meaning of can tabs in continually changing contexts. In 2018, she had a one person show at Guild Hall in East Hampton, NY, and the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington had three of her installations on view. In 2018-19, she initiated an all school/all year social practice piece that culminated in an interactive gallery show. In 2019, she was commissioned by Art in Embassies to build an installation for the new U.S. Embassy lobby in Maputo, Mozambique that will be installed in 2020. In Fall 2020, she is showing at Ricco Maresca. "Surge" is Hope’s first exhibition with Tripoli Gallery. She lives and works in East Hampton, NY.
