Shaun Leonardo: From Seeing To Witnessing
Shaun Leonardo’s multidisciplinary work negotiates societal expectations of manhood,  namely definitions surrounding black and brown masculinities, along with its notions of  achievement, collective identity, and experience of failure. His performance practice,  anchored by his work in Assembly—a diversion program for court-involved youth at the  Brooklyn-based, non-profit Recess—is participatory and invested in a process of  embodiment. 

Leonardo is a Brooklyn-based artist from Queens, New York City. He received his MFA  from the San Francisco Art Institute, is a recipient of support from Creative Capital,  Guggenheim Social Practice, Art for Justice and A Blade of Grass, and was recently  profiled in the New York Times. His work has been featured at The Guggenheim  Museum, the High Line, and New Museum, with a solo exhibition, The Breath of Empty  Space, currently at MASS MoCA, then traveling to The Bronx Museum in 2021.
