Simone Leigh's practice is an object-based exploration of black female subjectivity. Her sculptures, videos, and installations are informed by her interest in African art, ethnographic research, feminism, and performance.

In 2012 she was a Creative Capital grantee and served as a facilitator of the international art program at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos, Nigeria.

Her recent and upcoming exhibitions include solo shows at The Kitchen and Tilton Gallery in New York and group exhibitions at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston; SculptureCenter, New York; Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; L'appartement22, Rabbat, Morocco; the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh; and AVA Gallery in Cape Town, South Africa.

Cosponsored by the President's Diversity Steering Group.

The Design and Craft Lecture Series is funded by the Wornick Endowment Fund.
