Statement

Sophia Wallace is an American conceptual artist who uses mixed media to explore alterity. Wallace’s focus is how otherness is constructed visually on the gendered, sexualized, racialized body. Wallace has presented her work in major exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad, including Kunsthalle Wien Museum, Art Basel Miami, Scope NY, Taschen Gallery and Aperture Gallery among others. She was awarded PDN's Curator Award, Critic's Pick by the Griffin Museum, American Photography AP-25 and ArtSlant's Showcase Award. Her work has been reviewed in ARTSY, BLOUIN Art info, Hyperallergic, VICE, Huffington Post, The Guardian, GLAMOUR, Teen Vogue, Fast Company,  The New Yorker, les in ROCKS, and The Sydney Morning Herald among other publications. Wallace has received international critical acclaim and viral exposure for "CLITERACY" a project addressing citizenship and body sovereignty using the medium of text-based objects, unauthorized street installation, performance and sculptural forms. Wallace holds a BA from Smith College and an MA in Photography from NYU and the International Center of Photography. In 2012, she was a Van Lier Fellow. In 2014, she gave a TEDx Talk in Salford, UK.
