NADA Miami: Leilah Babirye, DW Fitzpatrick

Dec. 7–Dec. 10, 2017

For the 2017 edition of NADA Miami, Gordon Robichaux is pleased to present an installation of mixed-media works by Leilah Babirye (born 1985 in Kampala, Uganda) and Daphne Fitzpatrick (born 1964 in Long Island, New York). Bridging the artists’ national, cultural, and generational differences, the presentation makes evident their shared strategies and concerns: their use of collage, transformation of found objects and detritus, and engagement with queer identity, gender, and the body.

Gordon Robichaux will also introduce its 2017 print project—PORTFOLIO—an edition of eight works by eight artists: Leilah Babirye, Lucky DeBellevue, Elisabeth Kley, Siobhan Liddell, Monique Mouton, Dean Spunt, Tabboo!, and Ken Tisa.
