Zoe Leonard

New York-based artist Zoe Leonard balances rigorous conceptualism with a distinctly personal vision in her work, which merges photography, sculpture, and installation. Her practice probes the generational impact of displacement, what Leonard has described as ‘statelessness as both an individual experience and a shared social condition.’ The artist draws connections between the social upheaval of the post war years and the rise of photography as a popular medium. By utilizing a wide variety of cameras, formats, and printing processes, Leonard creates a visual language that is erratic, stuttered, and dispersed.


Leonard was born in 1961 in Liberty, New York. She has exhibited since the late 1980s and became well-known internationally following her installation at Documenta IX in 1992. Leonard’s work is the focus of a forthcoming retrospective at MOCA Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2018. Recent solo exhibitions include eponymous presentations at Galerie Gisela Capitain, Cologne, Germany (2017) and Hauser & Wirth, New York (2016), as well as ‘Analogue,’ MoMA Museum of Modern Art, New York (2015); ‘100 North Neville Street,’ Chinati Foundation, Marfa (2013); ‘Observation Point,’ Camden Arts Centre, London (2012); and ‘You See I am Here After All,’ Dia:Beacon, New York (2009). In 2007, Leonard was the subject of a twenty year career retrospective at the Fotomuseum Winterthur, Winterthur, Switzerland, which travelled to Reina Sofía, Madrid, Spain (2008); Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung, Vienna, Austria (2009); and Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich Germany (2009).
