In the upcoming spring, pay a visit to The Whitney Museum to catch a glimpse of Zoe Leonard latest major exhibition. “Zoe Leonard: Survey” is running at the New York museum from March until June.

New York-based artist, Zoe Leonard (b. 1961), is an acclaimed name in the art world of her generation. Throughout her career over the past three decades, Leonard has produced splendid artworks in mediums of photography and sculpture. The hallmark of her artworks is the poetic observations of daily life imbued with rigorous and challenging attention to the politics and conditions of image making and display.       

"Zoe Leonard: Survey" hosted by The Whitney Museum is the artist's first large-scale exhibition in an American museum. The show displays a detailed collection of her works from across her career. The presentation puts Leonard's engagement with a spectrum of subjects at the forefront, among which, themes like chronicles of photography, manifestations of loss and mourning, institutional regulations of gender, migration, and the urban landscape are notable. Leonard’s work, in a slow and reflective demeanor, calibrates vision and form. With the use of crafty repetitions, changes of perspective and scale shifts, Leonard draws her viewers into an awareness of the meanings that lay behind her series of otherwise familiar images or objects.

Zoe Leonard has been previously featured in three Biennials at the Whitney. She was awarded the Bucksbaum Award for her contribution to the 2014 Biennial and is significantly represented in the collections of Whitney Museum.

The exhibition "Zoe Leonard: Survey will be on view from March 2, 2018, through June 8, 2018, at The Whitney Museum of American Art, 99 Gansevoort St, New York, NY 10014, USA.
