Leigh Ledare

Based in: New York

For his debut Scandinavian solo exhibition, on view at Kunsthal Charlottenborg in Copenhagen from January-May 2013, Leigh Ledare (born 1976 in Seattle) has compiled a body of photographic and text-based work that examines the intimacy of human relations, with an idiosyncratic focus on his mother and ex-wife. The show, entitled Leigh Ledare, et.al, was first exhibited at WIELS Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels last Fall. Ledare also had solo shows at Michele Didier in Paris, Pilar Corrias in London, and The Box in Los Angeles in 2012, as well as group shows at Galerie Nikolaus Ruzicska in Salzburg, CCA Kunsthalle Andratx, and Galerie Michel Rein in Paris. His work is currently included in the exhibition Privacy at Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, on view through February 3. He will have a solo exhibition this June at Office Baroque in Antwerp.
