Simone Leigh - Code Switch

February 06, 2014


Simone Leigh’s work is informed by her interests in African Art, Feminism, Ethnographic form and Performance. Leigh’s debut west coast solo exhibition at Gallery Wendi Norris will open as she prepares for her first solo museum exhibition at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center in Spring 2014. Often referred to as a black Surrealist, Leigh will install a final version of Queen Bee 2008-2013, a chandelier-like sculpture that has changed in each installation since 2008 alongside other works in a range of material and media including glass, tobacco and digital video.

***As part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, Leigh will be speaking at the San Francisco Art Institute on Wednesday, February 5th at 7:30 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
