We are happy to introduce Quisqueya Henriquez, our new artist in residence. Tropical Papers has been closely following her artistic work for several years, as well as her commitment to the Dominican art scene through initiatives such as Sindicato (a gallery co-founded by artists for artists). Quisqueya will be at Tropical Papers sharing his research and observations of the entomological world of Las Terrenas, during the months of June and July. We will share on our digital platforms her drawings, her texts and her meetings with entomologists and other guests. Stay tuned…

Quisqueya Henríquez is a Cuban/Dominican artist, living and working in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

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.Her playful, phenomenological, and often participatory conceptualism aims to lure viewers into states of criticality. Henríquez’s work experimentally collapses vertiginous hierarchies to envision a reality beyond dominant structures in society. She tests the limits of authorship via appropriation and digital mechanization as well as collaboration and public participation. She shares her own authorship and asks viewers to rethink distribution of cultural capital.

She has exhibited in several art institutions in Latin America, United States and Europe, like the Bronx Museum of The Arts, NY. Artist Space, NY. Brooklyn Art Museum, NY. Museo Del Barrio, NY. Perez Art Museum of Miami, Allen Memorial  Art Museum AMAM, Oberlin Ohio. RISD Museum, Providence, Rhode Island. Museo Rufino Tamayo, México. Museo Carrillo Gil, México. Museo Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, MALBA, Argentina. Espacio Cultural Sergio Porto, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Museo de Arte Moderno, IFA Gallerie, Bonn y Berlín. Her work is part of public and private colllections, including the Bronx Museum of the Arts, NY. Museo del Barrio, NY. Perez Art Museum Of Miami, PAMM. Allen Memorial Museum of Arts, AMAM, Oberlin, Ohio.  Fundación Cintas, Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, NY. De la Cruz Collection, Miami. Colección Familia Rizek, República Dominicana, Colección Cortés, among others.
