QUISQUEYA HENRÍQUEZ | Double Double, Framed & Framed


Feb. 18, 2024 - Apr. 12, 2015

NEW YORK, New York 10002


Opening Reception: Wednesday, 18 February 2015, 6-8pm

LYNCH THAM is pleased to present Double Double, Framed & Framed, an exhibition of recent work by leading Caribbean artist, Quisqueya Henríquez.

The exhibition lends its title from the novel Double Double by John Brunner, while Framed & Framed is the title of a legendary work by Mike Kelley.

The works on view in the exhibition originate from Henríquez’s residency at the Bronx Museum of the arts in 2013. As a way to contextualize her experience in New York, she created a body of work incorporating iconic images of works of art from the MoMA permanent collection. In doing so, she linked two institutions, one as the creative source, the other, the production venue. “Mixing Accomplished” 2013-2015, remains an ongoing series; the most recent work explores the limits of authorship based on the manipulation and handling of images of works of art by renowned artists who are in the public domain on the web, or printed in books and magazines. It also addresses aspects related fate, the use and handling of images today, especially through access to photo sharing platforms.
