Sze Tsung Leong is an artist based in New York. His work includes the photographic series History Images, which portrays the erasure of history and the reshaping of a society through its built environment; Horizons, a collection of images of natural terrains and urban landscapes throughout the world that explores the relationships between far and near and foreign and familiar; and Cities, a detailed depiction of urban formations throughout the globe, from medieval towns to recent constructions, that together form a picture of the world at this particular moment in time at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Works from these series are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Deutsche Börse Art Collection, and the Yale University Art Gallery, among others. His work has been exhibited internationally, including a solo exhibition at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey, Mexico; and group exhibitions including An Atlas of Events at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, the 2006 Havana Biennial, New Photography at the High Museum of Art, the 2004 Taipei Biennial, and Painting as Paradox at Artists Space. He attended Art Center College of Design from 1987 to 1989, and received degrees from University of California at Berkeley in 1993 and Harvard University in 1998. In 2005, he received a Guggenheim Fellowship. In 2006, his book History Images was published by Steidl, who will also publish his next book Horizons in the fall of 2011. Mr. Leong’s work is represented by Yossi Milo Gallery in New York, which is currently showing his series Cities until April 2.
