Leslie-Lohman Speakers Series

We are proud to announce the upcoming schedule of events for the 2015-2016 the Leslie-Lohman Speakers Series. This ongoing series of lectures will focus on creating an environment and opportunity for studio based artists to interact with a public audience of diverse backgrounds, encouraging a dialogue between artist and audience. Lectures are free, and open to the public. All lectures start at 6:30 unless otherwise noted.


April 27
Sophia Wallace
American conceptual artist and photographer who uses images, video and mixed media to explore alterity. Her focus is how otherness is constructed visually on the gendered, sexualized, racialized body.

Funding for this series has been received in part from the generous support of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Event Artist Reception

May 5, 2016, 6 - 8pm



Sidney Mullis


Meet the artist Sidney Mullis and hear about her current exhibition and find out more about her other projects. In the "Mating Ritual Series," artist Sidney Mullis performs as invented animals to build a domain of alternative biology and culture. Interested in what constitutes “sexy,” Mullis’ video series stems from studying rap music and videos that instruct women how to perform their sex appeal. This media’s lyrics, which is evocative of mating rituals for contemporary culture, often directs women to “push it,” “shake it,” or “wiggle, wiggle, wiggle.”

With these performance-based videos, Mullis portrays invented genders to understand how woman is realized and, furthermore, performed. This proposed kingdom, however, is not suggesting itself as something to be strived for. It is a visual playground to speculate boundaries of gender performance in the present and for the future.
