Lädy Millard is an artist and a movement.
From her empirical experiences, Lädy Millard “appropriates” common iconography to not only claim her power, but also to reference the pervasive force of its imagery. As a social commentator and street anthropologist, Lädy Millard incorporates the environment to manipulate her audience's view of their reality. Lädy changes our perspective on the definition of "Lädy" itself.
“LUXURY” (A demise of culture and class.) Lädy Millard challenges the viewer’s experiences as a silent reflection of terrorism equating to luxury and “The decay of today’s cultural values.” Selected works include 2 dimensional pieces as well as a digital short shown in an ongoing loop. This is the first time Lädy’s digital work will be seen publicly.
Lädy Millard has been spreading her street anthropology since 2001 and in recent years has displayed work throughout the streets of New York City as well as San Francisco, New Zealand and many more. Although trained in different schools in New York City including the Art Students League, The High School of Art and Design and The Fashion Institute of Technology, Lädy refers to herself as an untrained artist because of her social experiences while attending school.
Recent exhibitions include 111 Minna and other group shows across the country. The "Luxury" show is currently featured in an article about Lädy in the Huffington Post:
