H. Leslie Foster II

Class of 2022

Leslie Foster's (he/him) work folds experimental film into installations to create contemplative ecologies and pocket universes that explore Black and queer futurity through a lens of dream logic. The work is a gentle invitation into turbulent space and the beautifully strange. His pieces often utilize ritual and movement, seeking to embody unnamed and undefined emotions and challenging viewers to mine their own discomfort.
