Over the last forty years, artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson (American, born 1941) has made pioneering contributions to the fields of photography, video, film, performance, installation, and interactive art as well as net-based media art. Hershman Leeson is widely recognized for her innovative work investigating issues that are now recognized as key to the workings of society: the relationship between humans and technology, identity, surveillance, and the use of media as a tool of empowerment against censorship and political repression.

In this virtual program, the artist will give a presentation and be in conversation with Robyn Farrell, associate curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Presented by the Society for Contemporary Art
