Sze Tsung Leong Art

American, b. 1970

Sze Tsung Leong is a British-American artist, born in Mexico City in 1970, and currently based in New York and Los Angeles. Leong’s work includes his photography series 'History Images,' which examines the erasure of history and the reshaping of society through the built environment.

Leong spent his childhood in Mexico, Britain, and the United States. He attended Art Center College of Design from 1987 to 1989, and received a B.A. and the Eisner Prize in Photography from the University of California at Berkeley in 1993, and a Master’s degree from Harvard University in 1998. In 2005, he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. In 2006, his book History Images was published by Steidl. His second book, Horizons, was published by Hatje Cantz in Spring 2014.

His works are included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the National Galleries of Scotland, the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Yale University Art Gallery, among others.

His work has been exhibited internationally, including a solo exhibition at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey, Mexico; and group exhibitions including An Atlas of Events at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, the 2006 Havana Biennial, New Photography at the High Museum of Art, the 2004 Taipei Biennial, and Painting as Paradox at Artists Space.
