Lesley Dill: Performance as Art

June 10, 2015 to September 6, 2015

Literature and poetry are constant sources of inspiration for New York-based artist Lesley Dill, who has degrees in English and philosophy. A painter, printmaker, sculptor, needlepointist, photographer, and performance artist, Dill frequently explores the relationship between the written word and human figure in nearly every medium and technique imaginable. Interweaving aspects of contemporary art and theatre, this exhibition focuses on her emotionally evocative work in performance and brings together a number of costumes, ephemera, photographs, and video projections from more than two decades. An illustrated publication accompanies the exhibition.
