About the Artist
Zoe Leonard (b. 1961), a self-taught American artist and activist, has made an indelible mark on the way we see the world. She has spent her career challenging assumptions about documentary objectivity, organizing her subjects in a way that emphasizes subjectivity and visual authenticity, often examining the same subject—whether it’s shopfronts, chain link fences, or birds in flight—from multiple viewpoints. This practice transcends photography: Her provocative 1992 poem 
 “I want a president” became a viral sensation in the pre-digital world, and continues to stoke dialogue to this day.

Leonard comes to Cincinnati as major surveys of her work are opening at the 
Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MOCA) and the Whitney Museum 
of American Art in NYC. Leonard will be in conversation with FotoFocus Artistic 
Director Kevin Moore.
