Leena Joshi is an artist, poet, and educator working across sculpture, video, performance, and text. Their work tends to the labor of appearance, illness, and desire for queer, racialized, and gendered people. Their projects often use the digital and virtual as spaces to explore a shifting, insufficient, and expansive definition of personhood. Leena’s written works can be found in SFMoMA’s Open Space, baest: a journal of queer forms and affects, Berkeley Poetry Review, the Felt, Monday: the Jacob Lawrence Gallery Journal, and TAGVVERK, among others. They hold an MFA from the University of California, Berkeley's department of Art Practice and work as the Digital Media Instructor at Creative Growth Arts Center in Oakland, California.
