Simone Leigh's art explores misrepresentation of Black women

Season 2023 Episode 345 | 5m 43s

Last year, artist Simone Leigh represented the U.S. at what is widely considered the world’s most important exhibition of contemporary art, the Venice Biennale. She was the first Black woman to have that honor. Now, there’s a chance to see her work in a retrospective touring the country. Jeffrey Brown meets the artist for our arts and culture series, CANVAS.
