Artists in Action 2016

Four presentations at Girls’ Club by prominent local artists will offer a glimpse into their unique methods of artmaking. Chosen from the current exhibition Self-Proliferation, the four presenting artists work with diverse media, employing various printing and proliferation techniques to carry their message.  They will share their inspirations, career paths and ah hah! moments with the public. A lively atmosphere and stimulating discussion is guaranteed.

Curated by New York-based Micaela Giovannotti, Self-Proliferation. is a selection of works from the collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz which express the natural female propensity for replication and fecundity. The majority of works are created as multiples - artist books, prints, photographs, videos. They manifest the fungible nature of contemporary art production and collection today, and exhibit an easy familiarity with technology. The supremacy of the original masterwork is sidestepped in favor of a more accessible and, at the same time, more radical awareness of the artwork within the marketplace.

At each event, Girls’ Club will release an affordably priced limited edition multiple produced by the artists for sale to the public. These multiples are all priced under $100 and range in object and function. Each object is created in collaboration with Girls’ Club and is informed by the artists’ interests. This is an opportunity for budding art collectors to own one copy of a signed, limited edition work, published by Girls’ Club.

Quisqueya Henriquez was born in Havana, Cuba and currently lives and works in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Her work 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.
