Zoe Leonard: You see I am here after all, 2008

August 21, 2008 - September 6, 2010, Dia Art Foundation

Zoe Leonard presents a new work comprising several thousand vintage postcards of Niagara Falls, dating from the early 1900s to the 1950s. Rendered stereotypical and generic through repletion over decades, these landscape motifs are emblematic of mass culture’s transformation of natural sites into tourist destinations.
