MFA VS Lecture: Simon Leung

image

The MFA in Visual Studies hosts Simon Leung as part of the 2012–2013 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

Using video, performance, and other media, Leung obliquely reinvents the war stories of our time. Pulling inspiration from objects, people, and writing that have been removed from their origins—through the effects of time, circumstance or historical violence—Leung recombines these parts to form new allegories that challenge the received meanings of his source material. A professor at the University of California, Irvine, Leung has exhibited at the Guangzhou Triennial (2008), Luleå Biennial (2005), Venice Biennale (2003), Whitney Biennial (1993), the Museum of Modern Art, Art Institute of Chicago, 1a Space (Hong Kong), NGBK (Berlin).
