Samantha Schneider: Lollipop

November 09
November 20 2020

Where Cleveland Institute of Art, Ann and Norman Roulet Student + Alumni Gallery

Add event to my calendar

Opening to the CIA community in the Ann and Norman Roulet Student + Alumni Gallery on Monday, November 9 is Lollipop, a solo exhibition by CIA student Samantha Schneider.

Lollipop is based on a linear narrative that follows Lollita (Lollipop), a stripper working for a night club owned by Zike Sray, a man of power responsible for murder, drug production and all-around dirty deals within the Orange District. Lollita is a stripper, or at least for the past few months that’s what she’s been made to believe. This life she’s living is not her reality. Who was she before this? These works unravel her life, who she is, who she was and what she is becoming.

This show pairs both painting and film in an intense story of action, emotion, corruption and discovery of self. An escapism through the world of sci-fi, creating an exciting cinematic experience of a perfectly imperfect world.

Building safety measures restrict access to the gallery to CIA students, staff and faculty only. The gallery is limited to 10 socially distant visitors at a time. This exhibition is not open to the public.
