Breach: Log 16

Exhibition runs April 15–Aug. 6

This event occurred Aug. 6, 2016

“Breach: Log 16” showcases the work of Courtney Michele Leonard, an artist and filmmaker from the Shinnecock Nation of Long Island, New York. Leonard’s work explores the evolution of language, image and culture through mixed media pieces of video, audio and tangible objects.

This exhibition is an exploration of historical ties to water and whale; imposed law; and a current relationship of material sustainability. Navigation lies within visual translation, acceptance and pursuit of process. Charting exists as a log of record, documenting and mapping each point where the surface breaks.

“Breach: Log 16” catalogs the expedition, encounters and experiences.

The opening reception will be held following the Jan Fisher Memorial Lecture by Courtney M. Leonard on April 15 at 6:30 p.m.
