Sophia Alana Stevenson holds a BFA from Watkins College of Art, Design, and Film in Nashville, TN, with a concentration in sculpture. She is currently an MFA candidate at the USC Roski School of Art and Design working in video, performance and sculpture.  Stevenson's thesis exhibition, …a perpetual sunrise, features a body of video installation work that investigates the experiences and perils of closeted queer relationships, connecting historical gay literature, films, and poetry to the present and personal. She also explores the idea of “queer longing,” which comes from self-discovery, reaching for the unattainable, and grappling with desire. Stevenson’s art has been included in exhibitions including The Skin I Live In at Lyles & King in New York (NY).
