Sze Tsung Leong

Sze Tsung Leong’s work includes the series Cities, a detailed depiction of urban formations throughout the globe, from medieval towns to recent constructions, that together form a picture of the world at this particular moment in time at the beginning of the twenty-first century; Horizons, an international collection of images of natural terrains and urban landscapes that considers the relationships between far and near, foreign and familiar; and History Images, which examines the erasure of history and the reshaping of society through the built environment.

His work has been exhibited internationally, including a solo exhibition at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Monterrey, and group exhibitions at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, the Havana Biennial, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Taipei Biennial, and Artists Space in New York. In 2005, he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship.
