Maria Thereza Alves

The Third Margin is a Gallery 101 Resource Room Project. This exhibition assembles together twenty years of bookworks, printed matter and documents by Maria Thereza Alves, a Brazilian artist and writer living in Germany.

In activist dispatches, conceptual bookworks, short stories and more, Alves uses texts to explore and explicate the ways in which individuals and communities coincide or collide. Maria Thereza Alves was born in Sao Paulo in 1961, and attended the Cooper Union School of Art in New York City. She currently lives in Berlin, where she holds a DAAD scholarship. Her work has been seen in international exhibitions in Europe and North America. Please visit this website for more information
