Hi, I'm Emma Sulkowicz.
I'm an artist who lives and works in my hometown, New York City.
In 2015, I made headlines for carrying around a dorm mattress everywhere I went on Columbia University's campus. I did this for as long as I attended the same school as my attacker. It cast a spotlight on the issue of sexual violence on college campuses. It was also part of an endurance performance artwork that served as my senior thesis at Columbia. I earned a BFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University in 2015.
Currently, I am studying studio art at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program. My recent works include Ceci N'est Pas Un Viol, an Internet-based participatory artwork, and Self-Portrait (Performance With Object), which was my first solo gallery show.
Some more information about me: I used to have a pet turtle named Turtle. I eat kale in some form every morning. When I go for a long time without eating sugar, I have dreams about cinnamon rolls. And I haven't eaten meat for a decade but my dad still asks, "When is your vegetarian thing going to be over?"
Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Monday, October 24th at 12 pm ET.
