Lynn Hershman Leeson: Investigations

November 17, 2011IASEvents0

Exhibition co-organized by the Katherine E. Nash Gallery in the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota and the Walker Art Center. Co-sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Study at the University of Minnesota. Over the last three decades, artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson has been internationally acclaimed for her pioneering use of new technologies and her investigations of issues that are now recognized as key to the working of our society: identity in a time of consumerism, privacy in an era of surveillance, interfacing of humans and machines, and the relationship between real and virtual worlds. Lynn Hershman Leeson: Investigations brings together three key projects spanning the trajectory of the artist’s career to date: Roberta Breitmore (1974-78) in which the artist created, lived and documented the life of a fictional persona; Lorna (1983-84) the first interactive art video in which the users make choices for an agoraphobic protagonist; and RAW/WAR (2011) a user-generated and constantly evolving interactive history of women artists and feminist art.
