Leonard's sound works go to the Bass Museum, Miami
The Bass Museum presents
MARIA MAGDALENA CAMPOS-PONS:
EVERYTHING IS SEPARATED BY WATER
Sept. 21, 2007 – Nov. 11, 2007
Leonard's sound is featured in two large scale multimedia installations. This exhibition will feature approximately 17 major works that include mixed media installations and large-format Polaroid photographs. This body of work spans 15 years (1990-2005), and explores the artist's ancestral displacement from Africa, her self-imposed exile from Cuba, and her experience as an Afro-Cuban woman living in North America. On view through November 11, 2007, this traveling exhibition is the first in-depth view of Campos-Pons's artistic career, and is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue, the first to explore her work. Organized by the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
