This solo exhibition presents the US premiere of Leslie Hewitt’s most recent investigations in photography, sculpture, and site specific installation—that explore her long-standing interest in non-linear perspective and early twentieth century notions of double-consciousness. Known for a practice that traffics in a realm between the sculptural and the photographic, and riffs on political, social and personal material in order to expand confining narratives, Hewitt’s current proposition evokes similar concerns.  Using Claude Brown’s Harlem migration text Manchild in the Promised Land (1965), as a point of departure, Hewitt creates visually elegant and thoughtfully composed situational works that question the contemporary moment through the exigencies of time.
