American artist and filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson (born 1941) is among the first and most influential of media artists. During the past five decades she has achieved pioneering work in the fields of photography, video, film, performance, installation, and interactive and net-based media art.

Her works have been shown in over 200 large-scale exhibitions, and constitute parts of noteworthy museum and private collections. First working in drawing and sculpture, Hershman Leeson turned to performance and conceptual art in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Her most influential performance work is Roberta Breitmore (1973–78)―the fictional character that she, and then three subsequent female personas, enacted in real time and space, using various artifacts of the period.
