Free and open to the public Photo: “War After War,” Simon Leung (2011)


Using video, performance, and other media, Leung obliquely reinvents the war stories of our time. Pulling inspiration from objects, people, and writing that have been removed from their origins—through the effects of time, circumstance or historical violence—Leung recombines these parts to form new allegories that challenge the received meanings of his source material. A professor at the University of California, Irvine, Leung has exhibited at the Guangzhou Triennial (2008), Luleå Biennial (2005), Venice Biennale (2003), Whitney Biennial (1993), the Museum of Modern Art, Art Institute of Chicago, 1a Space (Hong Kong), NGBK (Berlin).
