Overview

BALTIMORE — Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) is pleased to present “Shaun Leonardo: The Breath of Empty Space” exhibition, showcasing the work of the Brooklyn-based artist and organized by independent curator John Chaich. Through drawing and video, Leonardo considers how mediated images of systemic oppression and police violence against black and brown young men in contemporary American history have shaped our fear, empathy and perception. In a series of intimate and large-scale drawings based on images widely circulated in popular media,Leonardo calls on the additive nature of drawing to explore the reductive nature of memory and reflect on how time and circulation affect what is recalled, seen, forgotten or ignored. Using mirrored tints and die-cut glass, the works reframe the information viewers provide when details are omitted, the wall between artwork and gallery frame is interrupted and comfort and safety are compromised. RECEPTION: FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 6:00-8:00PM
