She has exhibited in the US and internationally, including Transcultural Exchange’s “The Tile Project, 2004-2008” (a permanent tile installation in 22 countries), and “Pandora Meets Sarajevo,” an exhibition she co-curated featuring artists from Bosnia, Vietnam and the US.

Sykes’s performance work incorporates dance, sound, text and visual art installations, most recently in “Velocity” by the collaborative group VIGA. “Lessons of Water and Thirst” was co-created with Pont des Arts Ensemble and their newest work, also entitled “Divided Beauty,” will premiere on October 24th at Woman Made Gallery"
