Zoe Leonard: "Survey"



Join Kavior Moon [SCI-Arc faculty] as she discusses Zoe Leonard’s recent “Survey” exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. A mid-career retrospective that included artworks from the mid-1980s to the present, Survey featured a wide-ranging selection of photographs and sculptural installations that address gender and sexuality, subsistence living and the urban environment, and memory and loss. Instead of attempting to attain the “perfect” shot in her photographs (à la Henri Cartier-Bresson), Leonard has continually reworked her photographic and her larger artistic practice through notions of fragmentation, contingency, and complexity.
