Zoe Leonard is among the most influential artists of her generation. Her work fuses photography, sculpture and installation, balancing rigorous conceptualism with a distinctly personal vision. Al Río / at the river, started in 2016, is a photographic project of epic scale that tackles the more than thousands of miles of river border shared by the United States and Mexico. Leonard approaches the river, known as Río Bravo in Mexico and Rio Grande in the United States, as a multifaceted lithmotif in which cultural, ecological, historical, social, political and economic concerns intersect. Published in two volumes, the first presents Leonard’s photographs, while the second, edited by Tim Johnson, brings together contributions written by a remarkable group of international artists, journalists, poets and scholars. Conceived as an alternative form of circulation for work, the publication also provides an interdisciplinary reference for people interested in the river, environmental issues, border culture and contemporary border issues.
