Strange Fruit

SAT, Mar 24, 2018
3 pm

Fruit on a floor.

In Zoe Leonard’s contemplative work, Strange Fruit (1992–1997), the artist sewed together skins of fruit over the course of five years. On the occasion of its appearance at the Whitney, the first since 2001, a range of voices will reflect on the work’s multiple historical inflections, its relevance and resonance today, and its very specific material existence.
