Lynn Hershman Leeson: Cyborgs and Self-Promotion

Thursday, March 10–Monday, August 8, 2016
Location:  224B Video

About The Exhibition

A pioneering artist practicing since the 1960s, Lynn Hershman Leeson explores the intersection of humans and technology through photography, video, and sculpture. A Commercial for Myself is a hybrid self-portrait/advertisement created specifically for public television, while Seduction of a Cyborg presents a future in which women are seduced into “cyborg-hood” through manipulated computer chips.
Born and raised in Cleveland, Leeson attended

Case Western Reserve University. This marks her return to the CMA since her participation in the 1968 May Show.
