Please join us for the public opening of ‘Zoe Leonard. Analogue’ the gallery’s first Los Angeles exhibition devoted to New York-based artist Zoe Leonard, which coincides with The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) retrospective – ‘Zoe Leonard. Survey.’ The landmark, decade-long project, ‘Analogue’ (1998 – 2009) is comprised of 412 photographs that document the homogenizing effects of globalization. The photographs in this installation depict vanishing storefronts and abandoned objects, which the artist captured using obsolete technology – a vintage 1940s Rolleiflex camera – along with gelatin silver and chromogenic processes. A preeminent artist of her generation, Leonard balances rigorous conceptualism with a distinctly personal vision in her work, which encourages the viewer to reconsider the act of looking.
The exhibition in Los Angeles marks the West Coast debut of this monumental installation, which was first shown in 2007 at The Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus OH.
This is a free event, no booking necessary.
