Leonie Bradbury is a curator of contemporary art who is passionate about creating platforms for artists to share their work and ideas and believes works of art generate their own theories. Her research explores intersections of art, science, and technology and their social impact.

She is trained as an art historian (M.A.) and artist-philosopher (Ph.D.) and serves as the Henry and Lois Foster Chair of Contemporary Art Theory and Practice and Distinguished Curator-in-Residence at Emerson College in Boston.

Bradbury has curated over a hundred exhibitions of contemporary art that explore wide-ranging topics ranging from formal issues to more conceptual topics including feminism, biotechnology and data networks. Many of her projects provide critical and social commentary through the lens of art. She has showcased the works of well-known artists including Jenny Holzer, Julie Mehretu, Matthew Ritchie and Wangechi Mutu.
