Leslie Hewitt: Sudden Glare of the Sun

Leslie Hewitt: Sudden Glare of the Sun

Presented by Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis
With support from the Regional Arts Commission.
Visual Arts
General Audiences

This exhibition is the most significant presentation to date in an American museum of New York-based artist Leslie Hewitt. Her work challenges our understanding of photography as a purely pictorial medium through an approach that emphasizes its sculptural potential. Hewitt repositions and re-contextualizes books, documents, family photographs, and other everyday objects that possess personal, historical, and political significance to demonstrate "the transformative power of circumstance or situation." Her work also reflects a studied interest in the illusory qualities of film—particularly its ability to expand and compress our perception of time and space—and sculpture’s emphasis on the presence of objects and how they alter our physical experience of the world.
