Zuleika Lebow

Artists

Zuleika Lebow is an artist and cultural producer born and raised in London. The diverse cultural wealth of the city and its history as a home for migrant communities is central to both her practice and her personal identity – her mother is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, born from 19th Century immigrants from the Baltic islands, and her father came to London in the early 1950s from Jamaica.

Lebow’s practice is led by social engagement as a means for personal and societal change. Her practice has three strands:

Collaboration, with collectives The CommonCollective Exchange and the Guttural Living project.

Personal work, centred around themes of identity, the sick body and lexicon via sculpture, photography and writing.

Cultural production, as a facilitator/organiser for feminist network Women of Power and her own platform for marginalised artists, The Blackbird.

In 2021 Peckham Platform commissioned Lebow to run a Creative Approaches workshop as part our our Tilting the Mirror programme, which aims to change perceptions of Peckham and of each other.
