Lynn Hershman Leeson: No Body Special
San Francisco-based artist Lynn Hershman Leeson is a pioneer in new media, and her Internet-based works have won her much acclaim. For No Body Special, part of the Collection Connections program, she creates an image of a red coat from the de Young Museum’s permanent collection that is featured in performances around the city. The exhibition will exist in the galleries and on the Internet, where it will inhabit a “second life.”
