Lynn Hershman Leeson
How to Disappear
19 July - 6 September, 2014

Spanning over fifty years, Hershman Leeson's interdisciplinary practice has made a significant impact on the post-modernist art canon of her home country, as well as opening up discourses internationally regarding the intersection between feminism, cybernetic technology and the art institution itself. Hershman Leeson is known as one of the most influential practicing feminist artists today. It is with great pleasure that Aanant & Zoo presents How to Disappear – a diverse selection of monumental works from Hershman Leeson's extensive portfolio. Most notably, How to Disappear will unveil a new video by the artist – The Ballad of J.T. Leroy.
