Zoe Leonard, Derrotero
November 5, 2008 - April 12, 2009
Dia Art Foundation presents Derrotero, an exhibition by New York-based artist Zoe Leonard, the second in a series of contemporary art projects commissioned by Dia for The Hispanic Society of America. Derrotero—taken from the Spanish word for itinerary, ship’s route, diary of a journey, or collection of sea charts-reflects Leonard’s interest in mapping and navigation. For this two-part presentation, Leonard has contextualized her monumental photographic work Analogue (1998-2007), shown in its entirety for the first time in New York, with A Route through the Collection, a selection of portolan charts and atlases from the Hispanic Society’s exceptional library.
