The University of the Arts and the Gershman Y are proud to present an exhibition of work by renowned artist Lesley Dill. Dill works in sculpture, photography, printmaking, and performance, using a variety of media and techniques to explore themes of language, the body, and transformational experiences. Myth & Menagerie serves as the premiere of a newly produced body of work by Dill. These new works are a collection of unusual animal/human puppet-like forms incorporating text and language.

Lesley Dill’s work has been widely exhibited and collected and can be found in the collections of the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; Cleveland Museum of Art, OH; Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, MO; Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Museum of Modern Art, NY; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, among many others.

Dill lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She has received a Joan Mitchell grant, an NEA grant, a Rockefeller Multi-Arts Program grant, New York Foundation for the Arts grant, and an Anonymous Was A Woman award. She is represented by the Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans, LA.
