Simone Leigh represented the United States at the 2022 Venice Biennale, one of the largest and most important contemporary art exhibitions in the world. Selections from Leigh’s landmark Venice presentation are making their U.S. premiere in Boston, joined by key works from throughout her career, providing a holistic understanding of the artist’s production in ceramic, bronze, and video.
Created on the occasion of the exhibition debut at the ICA, this classic book bag, rendered in 15 oz heavyweight cotton canvas, measures 14" x 12" x 3". Made in NH.
