About The Instructor:
Kacie Lees (b. 1986 — St. Louis, Missouri, she/her) is a teaching artist who’s prismatic body of work examines themes of identity, environment, and access. Drawing from somatics, gestalt, and the sublime, Lees’ radical pedagogy often takes form as neon, holography, video, or print. Splitting her time between Brooklyn and Chicago, Lees teaches the craft of neon bending at both New York University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She envisions a world where the power of light amplifies our humanity and expands the discourses of aesthetics, gender, and culture.
