Leah Weinstein is grateful to live and work on unceded xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ territories, also known as Vancouver, BC. Her artistic practice investigates connections between material culture and the social ideals of a larger collective. Using everyday objects and readymade materials to create sculpture, textiles and performance, Leah examines relationships between individuals and collectives, subjects and objects, action and display. Her work has been supported by the BC Arts Council; Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation; the Banff Centre, Banff AB; Touchstones Nelson Museum of Art and History, Nelson BC; and City of Richmond Public Art Commissions. Her professional experience includes designing costumes for contemporary theatre and dance companies, and she completed a Masters in Fine Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
