La Keisha Leek

La Keisha Leek is a writer, arts administrator and curator who graduated with a BA in Art History from Columbia College Chicago.

Her interests 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 for the Arts, and groun(d) at the Arts Incubator in Washington Park, and recently curated the exhibition How to Make A Hood at the Arts Incubator, with concurrent documentation of the show in the 2014 Albert P. Weisman Award exhibition at Columbia College Chicago's Arcade Gallery.
