2017 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Leah will produce Portraits, a series of performed duets in conjunction with the exhibition A MORE PERFECT UNION: Power, Sex, and Race in the Representation of Couples at the Woodmere Art Museum. This series of duets for mixed genders, ages, and races speaks to the complexities, passion, tension, confusion, and beauty of human connection. Leah will respond to the visual images within the exhibit and create an intimate look at couples, breaking expectations of race, gender, and orientation, using movement, sound, and text to catalyze the performers' and audiences' imaginations. The performance will also highlight the politics of representation and call attention to multiple understandings inspired by the visual artworks, the performers' responses, personal experiences, and artistic research.
