La Keisha Leek

La Keisha Leek is a writer, arts administrator and curator who will be graduating with a BA in Art History from Columbia College Chicago this May. Her interests within art history are architecture, race, performance, and site-specific projects that investigate the ways bodies and objects offer up themselves, adapt to and negotiate their presence within spaces. She has used exhibitions as a way to negotiate the presence of language in space contributing texts to The Fifth Dimension at the Reva and David Logan Center, and groun(d) at the Arts Incubator in Washington Park.

Through her matriculation at Columbia La Keisha has adopted a collaborative spirit. Her thesis project Afros & Ceramic Fruit documents a conversation series with Chicago-based artists and curators who’s work connects to spaces for contemporary antiquities in art and visual culture, through art making, place making and idea making, and in real-time offers recordings of these conversations as a satellite program to WSTS Radio, an online radio station founded by two former graduates of Columbia College’s Arts, Entertainment and Media Management department. She is also a member of several Chicago-based artist collectives including Hyde Park Dacha andPotluck: Chicago and works at Theaster Gates Studio and Rebuild Foundation.
