Description:

Rowan University Art Gallery welcomes Sidney Mullis who will be joining the Department of Art this spring for the annual Artist in Residence program.

Kicking off her semester-long residency, Mullis presents Legs Together a nimble and playful exhibition diving into the fluidity of gender, sexuality, and identity. Her work includes performance-based video, interactive objects and sculpture. Through her work she visually accentuates the plasticity of social constructs and the traditions surrounding them with humor and wit.

"My studio practice is a visual playground to probe how gender exists," Mullis says. "Like a wedge, a tool that both secures and splits other forms, I go in-between to produce work from a space where gender categories dissolve and cross-fade."

Based in State College, PA, Mullis has exhibited in a number of locations including Berlin, Germany and Tokyo, Japan. She has had solo shows at the Leslie Lohman Museum (NYC), Future Tenant Gallery (Pittsburgh), Bucknell University, University of Mary Washington, and more. Recent group exhibitions include Galleri Heike Arndt (Berlin), Trestle Gallery (NYC), Galleri Urbane (Dallas), pehrspace (LA), and Area 405 (Baltimore). Sidney Mullis is the recipient of the MASS MoCA residency, Ox-Bow MFA Residency, and a Creative Achievement Award from Penn State University. Sidney Mullis is represented by Galleri Urbane (Dallas, TX).
