09 16 07 – 01 27 08 | 2-6PM | QUISQUEYA HENRIQUEZ OPEN HOUSE: THE WORLD OUTSIDE A SURVEY EXHIBITION 1991-2007
For the first major survey of Quisqueya Henríquez’s work in the United States, The Bronx Museum will present a selection of sculptures, installations, drawings, photographs, videos, and light/sound works spanning the last two decades of the artist’s career. The Cuban-Dominican multi-disciplinary artist uses a wide variety of genre and media to engage the viewer in reexamining issues related to the environment and its role in the production of cultural clichés. In works such as Helado de Agua de Mar Caribe (Caribbean Seawater Ice Cream) (2002), she humorously addresses the stereotype of the Caribbean as a “hot-blooded” individual. Through her work, Quisqueya Henríquez invokes the sights, sounds, tastes, and textures of the city—all the sensory experiences that make urban life chaotic and provocative. Music by DJ David Medina.
