Letitia Quesenberry (b. 1971 Lousiville, KY) explores subtlety and obscurity to investigate visibility, memory and perception. While her drawings, photographs, lightboxes, videos, and text-based installations vary in approach and message, her work frequently considers the many ways in which certainty is elusive and ambiguity is compelling.
Quesenberry has had solo exhibitions at Pieter PASD, Los Angeles; Rockford University; and Smack Mellon, Brooklyn. Her work has also been included in exhibitions at 21C Museums, Louisville/ Cincinnati/ Bentonville; Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art; Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft, Louisville; Pierogi Gallery, New York; Rare Gallery, New York; the Speed Art Museum, Louisville; and the US Ambassador Residence, Stockholm. Her work is included in the collections of the Speed Art Museum and 21C Museum. Large-scale commissions include scenic design for two productions by the Louisville Ballet. Quesenberry is the recipient of the Kentucky Arts Council Al Smith Fellowship (2004), Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship (2008), and Great Meadows Foundation Artists Professional Development Grant (2016). She lives and works in Louisville, KY.
