Emma Sulkowicz, CC ’15, to mix performance art, sexual assault protest

For as long as her alleged rapist goes to Columbia, Emma Sulkowicz, CC ’15, intends to carry around a dorm room mattress wherever she goes.

Sulkowicz—who has spoken out against the University’s sexual assault policies and who filed a police report against her alleged rapist in May—chose for her visual arts senior thesis a performance art piece titled “Mattress Performance” or “Carry That Weight.”

Check out what she had to say about the attention the piece would surely draw.
