Shop the Show: Galerie Lelong’s Miami Pop-Up Shows a Shifting Set of Global Artists


Every month, hundreds of galleries showcase new exhibitions on the Midnight Publishing Group Gallery Network—and every week, we shine a spotlight on the exhibitions we think you should see. Check out what we have in store, and inquire more with one simple click.

What You Need to Know: Galerie Lelong, a longtime Art Basel Miami Beach exhibitor, has opened a winter outpost in the Miami Design District through January 2022. There, the gallery is presenting “Common Borders,” a rotating group exhibition of gallery artists including Etel Adnan, Petah Coyne, Leonardo Drew, Ficre Ghebreyesus, Alfredo Jaar, Samuel Levi Jones, Ana Mendieta, Hélio Oiticica, Jaume Plensa, Zilia Sánchez, Tariku Shiferaw, Nancy Spero, Michelle Stuart, Antoni Tápies, and Juan Uslé.

Why We Like It: “Common Borders” brings together historical and contemporary works that expand upon the gallery’s longstanding commitment to artists from Latin America and the Global South. The works in the exhibition are meant to reflect on the shared experiences between individuals through ancestry, language, cultural traditions, and spiritual practices. Taking an almost ecumenical approach to identity, the exhibition attempts to transcend the concept of physical borders that so often inform our understanding of identity. The Lelong gallery outpost has some good neighbors, too: Goodman Gallery and Mitchell-Innes and Nash also have locations in Paradise Plaza, and all three galleries are collaborating on public programming. 

What the Gallery Says: “Within the U.S., Miami has been and continues to grow as a diverse community, coalescing stories and traditions from around the world. The selection of works by the international and multi-generational artists in the program invites the Miami community to reflect and discuss themes of identity and borders that continue to speak to our social histories,” wrote Mary Sabbatino, vice president of Galerie Lelong.
