Preview: Lynn Hershman Leeson Confronts Where We Are In Society

Lynn Hershman Leeson reflects on the progression of her practice, fluid in medium while consistent in message, in this preview of the upcoming San Francisco Bay Area episode from Season 9 of the Art in the Twenty-First Century television series.

Recalling an experience from the 1970s where her work was purchased and subsequently returned by a male buyer, Leeson says, “Somehow he found out I was female and he returned the work because he said that women weren’t good investments. He was wrong.”

Season 9 of Art in the Twenty-First Century premieres September 21 at 9:00 p.m. on PBS. San Francisco Bay Area airs September 28 at 9:00 p.m.
