Along the River Border

Zoe Leonard is among the most influential artists of her generation. Her work merges photography, sculpture, and installation, balancing rigorous conceptualism with a distinctly personal vision. Al Rio / To the River, initiated in 2016, is an ambitious photographic project addressing the more than one-thousand miles of river boundary shared by the United States and Mexico. Leonard approaches the river, known as Rio Bravo in Mexico and Rio Grande in the United States, as a multifaceted leitmotif in which cultural, ecological, historical, social, political and economic concerns intersect. Published in two volumes, the first will feature Leonard’s photographs, while the second will bring together written contributions from a remarkable group of international artists, essayists, journalists, poets and scholars. Conceived as an alternate form of circulation for the work, the publication also provides an interdisciplinary reference for people interested in the river, environmental issues, borderlands culture and contemporary border issues.

ZOE LEONARD (*1961, Liberty, New York) works in photography, sculpture and installation. Her participation in Documenta IX brought her work to international attention. She has been the subject of solo shows at MOCA—Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2018), Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2018), and MoMA, New York (2015). She lives and works in New York City and Marfa, Texas.
