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.

 

Henriquez was born in Havana, Cuba and lives and works in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. After graduating from the Instituto Superior de Arte in Havana, Cuba, Henriquez has exhibited throughout Latin America, Europe, and the US. In 2013, the artist participated in the Bronx Museum International Residency Program. Henriquez has had solo exhibitions at Centro Cultural de Espana, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; Bronx Museum, Bronx, NY; Miami Art Museum, Miami, FL; Institute of Visual Arts, Milwaukee, WI; and The Contemporary Museum, Baltimore, MD. She has been included in group exhibitions at Oglethorpe University Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; Perez Art Museum Miami, Miami, FL; Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, Mexico; Frost Museum of Art, Miami, FL; 23 Bienal Nacional, Museo de Arte Moderno, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic; and 8 Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador. Her work is in important private and public collections including El Museo del Barrio, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, FL; Miami Art Museum; Cintas Foundation, NY; Rhode Island School of Design; and Coleccion Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, NY, among others. The September 2007 issue of ARTnews named Henriquez one of 25 art world trendsetters. Before traveling to the Miami Art Museum, Henriquez’s mid-career retrospective at the Bronx Museum of the Arts garnered a review in the New York Times.
