legrady portrait


Miklos Legrady is a visual artist, critical writer, anti-hero and protagonist who’s expecting trouble. He steps out of the art world’s blind spot, deconstructing myths and fictions. Emerging as a hybrid between scholar andad buster, Legrady writes criticism on a bed of witticism, moves through a world of political, social, and cultural intrigues, trends, and events. Like the Energizer Bunny, Legrady just keeps on going and going.

Legrady holds a B.Sc. in Photography from the Visual Studies Workshop, Rochester, N.Y., and an M.F.A. in Photography and Multi-Media from Concordia University in Montreal. He was co-founder of the New York performance group The Collective Unconscious and co-director for 3 years. His writing on art theory has been published since 2015 and as of 2017 Legrady is Toronto Editor of the New Art Examiner, U.K.

Legrady is represented in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada's Museum of Contemporary Photography and the Canada Council Art Bank, along with private collections and with internet artwork in the Rhizome Artbase, a New York online platform for the global new media art community. His work has been shown across Canada and internationally through exhibitions in the USA, England, France, Germany, Russia, Denmark, Belgium, Hungary, Spain and Japan.
