    Kristen Sollee

    Profile

    Kristen J. Sollée is a writer, curator, and educator exploring the electric intersections of art, sex, and culture. She has written for mainstream and academic publications including The Huffington Post, VICE, NYLON, Time Out New York, BUST, The Journal of Fashion, Style and Popular Culture, and Current Musicology, and lectured at colleges and conferences across the U.S. and Europe. Her 2017 book, Witches, Sluts, Feminists: Conjuring the Sex Positive was described as a "Must Read" by BUST and "a whirlwind history of the witch in America and her shared history with sexually liberated women and radical liberationary politics" by The Guardian. Sollee previously served as Gallery Officer for Japan Society Gallery, overseeing eight major exhibitions, including 2011's Bye Bye Kitty!!!, winner of the U.S. Art Critics Association Award for Best Show in a Non-Profit Gallery.
