Sacred Lands by Drew Leshko

March 23, 2018 - May 19, 2018

Event Navigation

Paradigm Gallery is pleased to present Sacred Lands , an exhibition of new sculptural works by the artist Drew Leshko, opening March 23, 2018 and remaining on view through May 19, 2018. The exhibition’s title is a reference to Leshko’s Philadelphia neighborhood of Fishtown, and its ancestral roots as the home to the indigenous Lenni-Lenape.

For more than a decade, Leshko painstakingly documented the rapid re-development occurring in his hometown of Philadelphia, specifically the historical neighborhood of Fishtown. Although Leshko’s works are sculptural by nature, he largely considers himself a documentarian, his sculptures echoing the work of legendary documentary photographers Gordon Parks and Bernd and Hilla Becher.
