Please join us for our Premier Exhibition during Miami Art Week...
SOLO, Not Alone. New Work by Ruth Burotte
OPENING RECEPTION November 20th 6-9pm
November 20th - December 2021
Young Haitian-American artist Ruth Burotte cleverly depicts her superheroes influenced by Japanese Manga and American Hip-Hop making visible a future/present that is both dystopian and joyfully dissociated, to shift the paradigms of art today.
On the occasion of Miami Art Week 2021, Swampspace is thrilled to present new work by Ruth Burotte. In her first solo exhibition, Ruth transports the viewer through prodigious cultural strata with an installation of painting, projection and sound. Heavily influenced by Japanese Manga and American Hip-Hop, she cleverly depicts self-made superheroes wearing masks, capes and kicks, who wield the power to confront diabolical adversity. As a first generation Haitian American artist, Burotte’s work makes visible a future/present that is both dystopian and joyfully dissociated, to shift the paradigms of art.
