Sophia Wallace ‘00 is an American conceptual artist and photographer. Through the use of images, video and mixed media, she explores 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 BLOUIN Art InfoHuffington PostFast CompanyHyperallergicThe New Yorker 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 was a speaker at TEDx Salford, http://tedxtalks.ted.com/video/Cliteracy-Sophia-Wallace-TEDxSa
