The Cliteracy Project: Artist Talk with Sophia Wallace 2/12

CLITERACY Eye ChartThe Cliteracy Project: Artist Talk with Sophia Wallace

February 12, 6pm, Gallery Theater 3rd Floor Elaine Langone Center

Presented in partnership with the Women’s and Gender Studies Department and the Women’s Resource Center, artist Sophia Wallace discusses her Cliteracy project, a new way of talking about citizenship, sexuality, human rights, and bodies. Wallace’s exhibition at the Samek Art Museum includes text panels from Wallace’s “100 Laws of Cliteracy,” as well as a large, clitoris-shaped sculpture. Her goal is to elevate the status of what she feels is an oft-overlooked part of the female anatomy using the medium of text-based objects, unauthorized street installation, and interactive sculptural forms. The talk will be followed by a reception at the Samek Gallery.
