Frederick Weston: Happening

Group Exhibition

 April 28–June 16, 2019


Gordon Robichaux is pleased to present Frederick Weston: Happening, a solo exhibition of multimedia collage works and an installation of related archival binders, created over the past thirty years by artist and poet Frederick Weston.


In conjunction with Happening, Gordon Robichaux has curated a group show of artwork by sixteen artists in the smaller room of the gallery: Nayland Blake, Anne Collier, Lecia Dole-Recio, Eve Fowler, Daniel Marcellus Givens, Matthew Higgs, Ray Johnson, Elizabeth Karp-Evans, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Devin N. Morris, Lorraine O’Grady, LJ Roberts, Sur Rodney (Sur), Tabboo!, Andre Walker, and Shyvette Williams. This eclectic group of artists and works engage many of the concerns and ideas central to Weston’s practice—his use of appropriated images and objects; collage strategies; and exploration of representations of identity, desire, and the human body.
