Zoe Leonard: You see I am here after all, 2008
September 21, 2008 - January 9, 2011
Zoe Leonard presents a new work comprising several thousand vintage postcards of Niagara Falls, dating from the early 1900s to the 1950s. Rendered stereotypical and generic through repetition over decades, these landscape motifs are emblematic of mass culture’s transformation of natural sites into tourist destinations.
