David Kordansky Gallery is pleased to announce its representation of Simone Leigh (b. 1967, Chicago). A wide-ranging thinker and virtuosic maker who produces objects, videos, installations, performances, and works centered on social engagement, Leigh explores black female experiences from a multiplicity of cultural and formal perspectives and historical viewpoints. The global array of her references, as well as her nuanced understanding of the varied contexts in which her work appears, results in critical investigations of such complex topics as the feminist perception of beauty, the role of the physical body in communities, and the representation of race, especially as it pertains to the agency of black women. Leigh’s projects take shape across a heterogeneous spectrum of registers, often combining symbolic and ethnographic modes, and identifying where individual and collective forms of address overlap.
