Leigh Ledare

b. 1976, USA

Leigh Ledare’s multidisciplinary work regularly utilizes photography, the archive, text, and film. His nuanced negotiation of the relationship between artist and subject gives rise to a complex and thoughtful body of work, questioning notions of subjectivity and the performative aspect of identity. Revealing shifting asymmetries in human agency relative to social frameworks and systems of communication, Ledare’s practice considers the effective means they use to reproduce themselves. Ledare rejects the notion that as historical subjects we are able to stand fully outside of culture to comment upon it.

Born in Seattle, Washington in 1976, Leigh Ledare received his MFA from Columbia University in 2008. His work has been widely exhibited in solo surveys at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, 2013; WIELS, Brussels, 2012; and at The Box, Los Angeles, 2012; Pilar Corrias, London, 2012; The Garage Centre for Contemporary Culture, Moscow, 2010; Les Rencontres de Arles, Arles, 2009; and Rivington Arms Gallery, New York, 2008. His work has appeared in group shows at Metro Pictures, New York; Shirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, 2012; PS1/MoMA, New York, 2010; Swiss Institute New York, 2009; and Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, 2008.
