Leeza Ahmady

Via New York, NY, USA

Leeza Ahmady’s pioneering work in the curatorial field takes Central Asia as its focal subject of inquiry, and has quickly evolved to complicating categorical representations of Asia as a conceptual, philosophical and geographical space that is both interconnected and fragmented. She is recognized for her innovative educational platforms AhmadyArts and Asian Contemporary Art Week (ACAW), which strategically partner with multiple museums, galleries, biennials and institutions to contextualize artists, while connecting audiences to practices in New York, Asia and elsewhere. Ahmady has presented numerous exhibitions, public programs and artists at notable art events and venues such as dOCUMENTA 13, Venice Biennale, Istanbul Biennial, Guggenheim Museum, Asia Society Museum, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Asia Art Archive, Independent Curators International, (ICI), Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Queens Museum of Art and Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, among many others.
