QUEENIE: Selected Artworks by Female Artists From El Museo del Barrio's Collection
Hunter East Harlem Gallery (HEHG) at Hunter College and El Museo del Barrio presents the exhibition QUEENIE: Selected Artworks by Female Artists from El Museo del Barrio's Collection.
The group exhibition features a selection of works from the East Harlem-based museum's Permanent Collection that prompt a multifarious dialogue not only around society and gender but simultaneously refutes a homogenized view of Latinx art. With a particular focus on female artists from the Caribbean, Latin America, and the larger Latinx diaspora, QUEENIE explores the roles women have played in El Museo del Barrio's history and its impact on the local East Harlem community.
QUEENIE takes its title from a sculpture by Alessandra Expósito, a wall piece that illustrates an imagined story of a young girl and her pet horse.
