“Art is expression and helps us communicate our feelings and experiences," Dr. Lynn Vartan, director of A.P.E.X. Events said. "The ability of art to also help us explore topics of identity and place fascinate me, and I cannot wait to hear from this artist on how she creates.”

Aïsha Lehmann is an artist who uses culture and storytelling to inspire her pieces. She works her storytelling by exploring the complexities of identity in race, ethnicity, gender, and spirituality. Lehmann creates landscapes, portraits and more that all explore individual human identities. She creates imagery that has the potential to teach about the nuances of identity in ways words cannot.

As she researches, she examines academic studies, her own gathered material on others’ experiences, and written narratives. She interprets her observations into imagery using paper, patterns, drawing, and printmaking techniques.

A.P.E.X. Events is SUU’s premier weekly lecture series, with speakers and presenters invited from all areas of the world. While on campus, guests are invited to interact with students and faculty in multiple ways, with opportunities to connect and network in vast areas of scholarship. All A.P.E.X. Events are free and open to the public.
