The Heckscher Museum of Art is honored to present the first retrospective of the work of Courtney M. Leonard (Shinnecock, b. 1980). Leonard’s powerful work in ceramics, painting, video, and installation engages with Long Island’s colonial history; celebrates Indigenous knowledge and resilience; and addresses urgent ecological issues. The exhibition will debut Contact, 2,023…, a new work that the Heckscher Museum has commissioned from Leonard. The large-scale work will be a map of Long Island made up of thousands of individual porcelain thumbprints resembling shells. Leonard plans to glaze them in colors and patterns that reference both wampum and delftware. The exhibition will also feature loans from the artist and from public and private collections.
