B. 1976, HAVANA, CUBA
Glenda León is a multimedia artist whose body of work is permeated by a sense of lyricism; she addresses broader socio-cultural and political issues through the more focused lens of the personal. She is interested in the “interstices” between silence and sound, the ephemeral and the material. León lives and works between Havana and Madrid.
She has exhibited widely in Europe and participated in numerous residencies in Canada and France. She is the recipient of several awards that include the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, MAEC Grant in Madrid and the DAAD Scholarship for Artists in Germany.
