Artist Protection Fund
Director
New York, New York
Alison Russo, Senior Director of the Artist Protection Fund (APF), joined IIE in September 2015 having most recently curated and managed the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Programs and arts portfolio. Alison has spent the last years designing and developing the APF program—which fills a gap in assistance for threatened artists—by exploring innovative ways to respond to the specific needs of these artists by constructing a comprehensive, collaborative and socially engaged program that stands as a leader in the artistic freedom and freedom of expression movements. As an artist, she has worked collaboratively to create original devised work with a focus on site specificity, integrated media and civic engagement; her collaborations include arts and philanthropy, live performance, installation and video; she has made work and been involved in arts-based humanitarian projects in the U.S., Europe, the Balkans and East Africa. Alison is an honors graduate of the University of Connecticut and holds her MFA from California Institute of the Arts.
