Letitia Quesenberry is an American artist whose practice is distinguished by investigations of visibility, memory, materiality and doubt with particular attention to subtlety and the fugitive nature of perception. While her drawings, light boxes, videos, photographs and text-based installations vary in approach and message, a unity of effect runs throughout. Her work frequently offers a cognitive moment that 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 and Cincinnati; 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. Large-scale commissions include scenic design for two productions by the Louisville Ballet. Quesenberry is the recipient of Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellowship (2008), Great Meadows Foundation Artists Professional Development Grant (2016), and Kentucky Arts Council Al Smith Fellowship (2004). She lives and works in Louisville, KY.
