LYNN HERSHMAN LEESON: CIVIC RADAR at the YBCA

At SF’s YBCA: 10 FEB 2017 — 21 MAY 2017

It is often said that artists are visionaries who show us a path towards the future, but very few artists fit this description as well as Lynn Hershman Leeson.

 

A fearless pioneer whose performances were fueled by feminist indignation of the vulnerable position of women in American society, her work has been a harbinger of experiments in social practice, new media, interactive and net-based art decades before technology and digital culture would re-shape our experience of reality. Based in the Bay Area for her entire career, it has taken too long to bring attention to her complex practice. –Lucía Sanromán, YBCA Director of Visual Arts
