Presenting a solo suite of new textile work by QUALEASHA WOOD
December 2–4, 2021, NOVA Section Booth N8







For our 2021 Art Basel Miami Beach presentation, Kendra Jayne Patrick will show a solo suite of new textile works by gallery artist Qualeasha Wood. Wood's tufted and tapestry pieces mesh traditional craft and contemporary technological materials as a means of parsing both an Internet environment saturated in Black Femme figures and culture, and a political and economic environment holding that embodiment at the margins. Like the vast majority of her age-peers, Wood has operated one mortal and multiple digital avatars since pre-adolescence. For her what are intuitive combinations of analog and cybernetic compositional processes make for a plainly contemporary exploration of Black American Femme ontology. This will mark the first occasion that the tapestry and tufted works will be shown together. We will be showing at booth N8 in the NOVA section.
