Quisqueya Henríquez: The World Outside A Survey Exhibition 1991 - 2007
April 25 – July 20, 2008
Miami Art Museum presents the first U.S. survey exhibition of the multifaceted work of the Cuban-Dominican artist Quisqueya Henríquez. Henríquez is known for concept-driven works that serve to shorten the cultural and psychological distances between the Caribbean and the “outside world,” often through sensory experience and viewer participation. With a sharp sense of humor and an acute sensitivity to the struggles and ironies of everyday urban life, Henríquez breaks down the barriers between experimental art and popular culture. The exhibition includes over 20 installations, collages, photographs, videos, and light/sound works spanning the last two decades of the artist’s career
Quisqueya Henríquez The World Outside A Survey Exhibition 1991–2007 was organized by The Bronx Museum of the Arts. The exhibition is supported by Agnes Gund and Daniel Shapiro; The Peter Jay Sharp Foundation; American Center Foundation; Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, Caracas-New York; The Cowles Charitable Trust; and anonymous contributions. Additional support is provided by Miguel Barletta; District & Co; Jesús Barderas; Ricardo Köenig; and Magnan Projects.
Its Miami presentation is coordinated by MAM Associate Curator René Morales and supported by Goldman Sachs, Sotheby’s and MAM’s Annual Exhibition Fund
