Carolyn Sortor is a media-based artist, curator, and writer with a B.F.A. purchased from her then-boyfriend, who didn't need it anymore. Her work has been exhibited in New York, San Francisco, Dallas, and elsewhere and broadcast on Current TV. One of her best-known works is her Matthew Barney spoof, Creamistress 6: "The Centered Polenta." In 2008 she co-curated the first "The Program" in Dallas, Texas, comprising media-based works by nearly fifty internationally-known artists. In 2012 she co-curated "Co- Re-Creating Spaces" at CentralTrak in Dallas, and before that served as coordinator and an artist for "Expanded Cinema," a program of new video art works created for the LED display wrapping the exterior of the Omni Dallas Hotel. Before coming out as an artist, she had a twenty-year career as a transactional lawyer.
