Leslie-Lohman Museum Speakers Series Invites Diverse Perspectives

The Leslie-Lohman Museum in SoHo will continue to grow its educational offerings in 2016, anchored by its Speakers Series. The goal of Speakers Series is to create opportunities for learning and dialogue between artists and the expanding audience.

February 25: Leon Mostovoy
The artist will present his Transfigure Project and the audience will be encouraged to interact with the project website, www.transfigureproject.com. Mostovoy’s lecture will be followed by his art exhibition at Price Street Project Space February 26-28.

March 14: Amelia Jones
Jones is one of the most well-recognized queer, feminist art historians today. Her recent publications include essays on performance art histories and theories, queer feminist art and theory, and feminist curating.

April 27: Sophia Wallace
Wallace uses images, video, and mixed media to explore alterity. She is focused on how otherness is constructed visually on the gendered, sexualized, racialized body. Her large-scale installation CLITERACY, 100 Natural Laws, 2012, was included in the Museum’s 2014 exhibition, After Our Bodies Meet: From Resistance to Potentiality.

All events are free and will be held at the Leslie-Lohman Museum (26 Wooster Street, SoHo) at 6:30pm. Visit www.leslielohman.org for more details.

The Speakers Series is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
