I want a president: Transcript of a Rally
Staple bound. Published by Badlands Unlimited. 52 pages.
I want a president: Transcript of a Rally is a beautifully published work by Zoe Leonard and her collaborators based off readings and performances done at an event on New York's High Line days before the 2016 election, where Leonard's 1992 work, I want a president.

Texts and lyrics are reinterpreted and given new meaning. The transcript acts as an artifact of resistance and activism, an outlet and vessel, a place of freedom of expression for those people and groups that the ruling class of society casts aside and doesn't deign to care about. It also manages to encapsulate so many of the issues the world reckoned with in 2016, and will continue to reckon with, from Standing Rock to racial justice to LGBTQ+ rights. Designed by Joseph Logan.

Part of the proceeds from the sales of the paper edition of I want a president will go towards Black & Pink.

This book accompanies the Whitney's 2018 exhibition Zoe Leonard: Survey, organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
