In 2010, Leslie Hewitt had her first solo exhibition at The Kitchen, titled Objects and Dissonance. The exhibition featured investigations in photography, sculpture, and film installation. Hewitt explored the idea of collective memory and her tiny photo-sculptures functioned almost as memorials—sites where the past could be in dialogue with the present. Hewitt’s newest film installation, made in collaboration with cinematographer Bradford Young, used Claude Brown’s Harlem migration text Manchild in the Promised Land (1965) as a source of inspiration. Her photographs came from Midday, A Series of Projections, and Riffs on Real Time. This exhibition was curated by Rashida Bumbray.
