Alaya Ang

Alaya Ang is a curator and visual artist based in Glasgow, and currently works as associate curator at the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Glasgow.

They are developing a year-long research and residency programme, Confluence, that brings together artists, curators and researchers to engage in conversation and share knowledge around water, intertwining different territories across seas; specifically around coastal and fluvial ecologies in Scotland, Middle East and North Africa.

Their curatorial work is shaped by queer, feminist and anti-racist work and community building. This includes imagining institutions that recognise and can relate to the embodied experiences of queer communities of colour and engaging in processes that cultivate relationships, centred on the activation of intentional communities and the potential for intersectional co-existence.

Previously, Alaya has been at Transmission Gallery, an artist-run-space in Glasgow, programming international and local artists. Some examples of artists exhibited include iQhiya, collective of Black feminist artists from South Africa for Glasgow International 2018, La Nietas de Nonó (Puerto Rico), Lydia Ourahmane (Algeria), Ain Bailey and Delaine Le Bas (UK).

Alaya has also worked with organisations such as Arika at Episode 10: A Means Without End, Edinburgh Arts Festival and Scottish Queer International Film Festival.
