ARCHIVAL NOTE RE WPA (Roger Denson, in personal correspondence with Edmund Cardoni, August 10, 2017): 

"The show only travelled to The New Museum [NYC] and A Space, Toronto. It was supposed to then go to the WPA gallery in Washington DC, but budget cuts or something prompted its cancellation.…the catalogue [which, when it went to press, listed WPA as the show's final stop] was printed anticipating the exhibition taking place [there]. I think it wasn't until after both the New York and Toronto shows that it was decided there wasn't the money available to either of us [Hallwalls or WPA] to transport and insure the work at the time for which it was scheduled."

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
