Leilah Babirye features in '52 Artists: Revisiting a Feminist Milestone'

The Aldrich, Ridgefield, Connecticut, USA

'52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone' celebrates the fifty-first anniversary of the historic exhibition 'Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists', curated by Lucy R. Lippard and presented at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in 1971. '52 Artists' showcases work by the artists included in the original 1971 exhibition, alongside a new roster of twenty-six female identifying or non-binary emerging artists, tracking the evolution of feminist art practices over the past five decades. The presentation encompasses the entirety of the Museum (approx. 8,000 sq. ft)—the first exhibition to do so in The Aldrich’s new building which was inaugurated in 2004.

The twenty-six emerging artists were born in or after 1980, live and work in New York City, and will have not had a major solo museum exhibition in the United States as of March 1, 2022, aligning both with The Aldrich’s mission of representing the work of emerging artists and with Lippard’s original mandate for the 1971 exhibition.

The exhibition is organised by The Aldrich’s Senior Curator Amy Smith-Stewart, who selected the emerging twenty-six artists, and independent curator Alexandra Schwartz, with The Aldrich’s Curatorial Assistant and Publications Manager Caitlin Monachino.
