The ties that bind
Included in her landmark survey at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 2018, the sculpture and photography brought together for the exhibition explore especially resonant themes of confinement and liberation, solitude and togetherness.

About Zoe Leonard
New York-based artist Zoe Leonard balances rigorous conceptualism with a distinctly personal vision in her work. By employing strategies of repetition, shifting perspectives, and a multitude of printing processes, Leonard’s practice probes the politics of representation and display. Leonard explores themes such as gender and sexuality, loss and mourning, migration, displacement, and the urban landscape. More than its focus on any particular subject, however, Leonard’s work encourages the viewer to reconsider the act of looking itself, drawing attention to observation as a complex, ongoing process.
