Leah DeVun is an artist and historian. Her photographs and installations explore the legacies of feminism—the landscapes of rural lesbian communes, the drag-like costumes of pre-teen obsessive Hannah Montana fans, the contents of a historic gay and lesbian archive—with a special interest in queer and gendered communities, fashion and fandom, memory, politics, and identity. Committed to analog/wet-process photography while it lasts, she strives to produce art that is participatory, interdisciplinary, and socially active. Her work has been featured in Artforum, Capricious, LA Weekly, and Art Papers. Her writings have appeared in Wired, Radical History Review and Journal of the History of Sexuality. She has received grants and fellowships from the National Science Foundation and UCLA.
