Aliya Bonar

Aliya Bonar is an artist, community organizer, and event producer. Using fashion, costume, interview, and installation, her work engages individuals in exploring how we present ourselves to the world and breaking down the divide between professional and playful. The “PowerSuit”—a defining component of Aliya's body of work—is a personal talisman, relating to the wearer's body and history. It is what one's most courageous self wears and while clothed, one can't help but be powerful.
