Wood Street Galleries, Opening Reception September 22
Artist Jenson Leonard’s first solo exhibition uses film and computer monitors to comment on the intersection of Blackness and capitalism. “My film seeks to disabuse notions of completion, whether it be completion of the human, the nation state, or civil society,” Leonard says of Workflow. “[Methods] to maximize profits and production can be traced back to methods worked out and perfected in the cotton and sugar cane fields hundreds of years prior.”
