Leigh Ledare

work raises questions of agency, intimacy, and consent, transforming the observer into the voyeur of private scenes or situations dealing with social taboos. Using photography, the archive, language, and film, he explores notions of subjectivity in a performative dimension, his interventions putting in tension the realities of social constructions and the projective assumptions that surround them. In addition to being the subject of major surveys at Charlottenborg Kunsthal, Copenhagen (2013), and WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (2012), Ledare’s work has been exhibited extensively, including: The Plot, Art Institute of Chicago (2017); the 2017 Whitney Biennial; and Manifesta 11, Zurich (2016).

Originally hired at the Metropolitan Museum to catalogue the Ford Motor Company Collection of avant-garde European and American photography between the two World Wars, he was promoted to the position of full Curator in 2007. An expert in American photography with wide-ranging interests from 19th-century to contemporary art, Jeff has taught at Columbia University, the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, and Bard College, and is an admired public speaker, most recently with talks at Yale and Stanford universities. He has organized or co-organized some 20 exhibitions at the Met, and was responsible for facilitating the Museum’s acquisitions of the complete archives of photographers Walker Evans in 1994 and Diane Arbus in 2007. A foremost authority on Evans, he has organized six exhibitions of the artist’s work, including Walker Evans, a major retrospective at the Met in 2000, and Walker Evans and the Picture Postcard in 2009, and has authored eight publications on Evans’s œuvre. He was the curator responsible for the Metropolitan Museum’s presentation of the exhibition Diane Arbus Revelations in 2005, was a co-author of its award-winning catalogue, and also collaborated on the Diane Arbus exhibition traveling in Europe and currently on view at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin.

Donatien Grau (Hg.), Christoph Wiesner (Hg.): After the Crisis

After the Crisis offers a platform for discussions between some of today’s leading artists, writers, theorists, curators, and historians aimed at questioning the very status of photography today. Contributors come from the realms of critical theory, fiction,  performance art, fashion photography, and museums, as well as film and design, and their conversations bring together history and the contemporary. Comparing the current situation of photographic images with the crisis experienced by representation at the time of the birth of photography, they set our relationship with photographic images in the digital era in perspective. Through these discussions, we come to sense the existential burden of being surrounded by images, while also beginning to grasp the historical depth of a questioning of images that started long before the current generation and engages with crucial political and cultural issues of our time.
