Leor Grady is an Israeli-born visual artist and an independent curator, working and living in NYC.

His work has been shown in the US and abroad, among others, Homomuseum at Exit Art Gallery in New York City, Fashion Show at The B.K. Smith Gallery in Cleveland and The Home Base project – a site responsive annual project in NYC as part of ARTIS 2007–

Leor served on the faculty of The Makor/Steinhardt Artists-In- Residence Program of the 92nd St Y in 2006-7 where he created, taught and curated several projects among them: Metropoly Arts festival, Urban Spectacle exhibition and Select: video art series of alumni of the Artist-in-Residence program.

His work navigates within the realm of the intimate and the private. It negotiates between the two, leading to a visual exploration of the poetic in the mundane.

Interdisciplinary in nature, and site specific in content, Leor's works explore themes of home, territory and identity. Through drawing, installation and video art, Grady subversively reposition everyday objects, concepts and experiences and imbues them with poetic meaning.
