Artist Talk with Leanne Goldblatt
January 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for a conversation in the Book Arts gallery with exhibiting artist Leanne Goldblatt. Together, we’ll observe the artwork on view and explore the artists’ installation of handmade garments embellished, and layered, with snapshots from a privileged, white-trash upbringing.

Leanne is a New York born and based practitioner, mother, and teacher currently living in Buffalo, NY. She received a Masters of Fine Arts from her alma mater, the University at Buffalo. She is an interdisciplinary maker currently working across mediums of print, sculpture, fiber, and digital media. Leanne’s practice is a skill-based, hand-made aesthetic with an obsessive tendency towards streamlining repetitive, production-style processes.
Through crude depictions of unusual autobiographical memories, Goldblatt’s stories are a sarcastic, sometimes deadpan, treatment of family trauma in which the construction of truth acts as a divisive mechanism for control and abuse. Her interests rest on how sexuality, identity, gender, and ethics developed in a totalitarian system.
