Simone Leigh

 
 

A mini-doc / artist profile I helped produce and film while working as in-house video producer for the Guggenheim Museum (full credits below) on Simone Leigh as part of her solo exhibition “The Hugo Boss Prize 2018: Simone Leigh, Loophole of Retreat.”

Simone Leigh, winner of the 2018 Hugo Boss Prize, introduces her artistic practice and the process of making new sculptures for the exhibition “Loophole of Retreat.” In the video, she notes, “The way you understand a sculpture is by relating it to your own body, so you feel its edges and its presence in space by that relationship. When I think about a young black child relating to that sculpture, it’s very exciting for me.”

Her solo exhibition “The Hugo Boss Prize 2018: Simone Leigh, Loophole of Retreat” is on view through October 27, 2019 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Learn more at https://www.guggenheim.org/simoneleigh
