In-Between Worlds: Selections from the Studio Archive of Charo Oquet

January 25 - March 31, 2020

In-Between Worlds: Selections from the Studio Archives of Charo Oquet documents the art practice and activities of Dominican-born, Miami based artist, curator, organizer, educator and gallery owner Charo Oquet. Her multidisciplinary art practice spans over thirty years,  across three continents, and explores the intricate and underlying parameters of cultural migration, identity, and ritual traditions that encompass the socio-cultural landscape of the Dominican Republic. 

Oquet travelled extensively throughout her life and this exhibition highlights documentation of her fieldwork and research, as well as the stylistic developments of her art production that took place in New Zealand, Europe, America, and the Caribbean. From painting, printmaking, sculpture, installation, performance, and photography, her approach to art-making has defied normative conventions. More recently, her techniques rely heavily on the use of found objects and building materials.
