Galerie Lelong & Co. looks forward to returning to the Miami Design District with a new seasonal exhibition space at Paradise Plaza from end of November 2021 through January 2022. On November 29th, the gallery will open with Common Borders, a rotating group exhibition featuring artists from its roster; a second exhibition will follow in January. Within the Plaza, Galerie Lelong will present its program alongside neighbors Goodman Gallery, South Africa and London, and Mitchell-Innes & Nash, New York. All three galleries will collaborate on public programs and share the same opening hours.


Galerie Lelong has participated in Art Basel: Miami Beach since its inaugural edition in 2002 with its Vice President and Partner, Mary Sabbatino, serving on the board of its Selection Committee from 2013 to 2020. In addition to participating in the upcoming iteration of the art fair, the gallery is pleased to continue fostering a deeper conversation with Miami’s vibrant community by presenting Common Borders. This rotating group exhibition brings together historical and new works that expand upon the gallery’s longstanding commitment to artists from the Global South and art that examines aspects of our shared human consciousness. The artworks on view invite the audience to reflect on common borders between individuals: shared experiences, ancestry, language, cultural traditions and spiritual practices, that reimagine identities beyond defined physical borders. The presentation encompasses a wide range of media including painting, work on paper, sculpture, and photography.

Common Borders builds upon the presence of the gallery’s artists in Miami, re-establishing their ties within the local community, while introducing and opening dialogues on artists who are lesser known in the region. Institutions such as the de la Cruz Collection, Lowe Art Museum, and Pérez Art Museum Miami will have works on view by gallery artists during the coming weeks.
