Quisqueya Henriquez

Born in Havana, 1966 and lives in Santo Domingo

Quisqueya Henriquez provokes conventions of race, ethnicity, and gender encountered in Caribbean and Latin cultures and practiced universally.  Working across collage, print, video, installation, and sound, Henriquez connaturalizes stereotypes originating in corporeal notions of beauty and athleticism and expanding to manifest destinies perpetuated by contemporary ideals of cognitive ability, economic achievement, political power, and art history. Compared to the compounded systems they expose, Henriquez’s subjects seem grotesque in their banality and implication of the viewer in cultural counterfeit.
